Question Just finished the real test -- ???

Hi,
Today I took the real test. It is a great experience and the test
1) Comprises of 55 questions.
2) Time limit is 120 mns.
3) Almost 60--70% of questions with exibits(diagrams).
4) Few with multiple diagrams.
5) The sample test questions are very very easy when compared with the real one.
6) I have scored more than 80% in the sample test few times but in the real test I scored only 66%.

Please post your views, How to excel in this test.

Thanks and regards,

Hi,
This is laxmi.
Congratulations about your success. I need your guidence.
I finished my JCP , and want to write more certifications.
I thought of going for a J2EE architecture but not sure weather I can finish it or not.
That's why I want to go for a UML certification. Could you guide me , how to begin.........?
I just want to know how the exam pattern will be.
Thanks,
Laxmi

Start here.

Hi,
Please visit www.jcert.org, you can get all the information. There is link to IBM web site which provide more detailed information. Please read my previous posting again. I got 66% only (FAILED -- no need to congradulate).

Thanks and Regards,

It seems to me that the Development Process is the most difficult part. It is not covered so detailed in Larman's book which i otherwise find very useful.

"I passed the test about a month ago (77%).

I have not even programmed in OO stuff for more than a year, never mind OOAD.
My first intro to OOAD was 3 months ago. Reading the Fowler book again and again was the best preparation. Also I read the Larman book once for more detail, but the Fowler is the one to know.
Some other facts: I never got more than 70% on the sample test.
I found the sample one much more vague. I am of average intelligence!"


Actually, I wish this was me, but it isn't. FYC I have reposted this from the thread "Who writes Use Cases".

It looks like the Fowler book is the one to get. I have been doing OOP and OOAD for 10 years, (more or less), and can't get more than 70% in the sample test.

QUESTION TO ANYONE WHO HAS TAKEN THE EXAM
The sample test has very little about specifics of UML notation, such as adornments and well-formedness of diagrams. Most of the questions relate to the process, and to difficult design decisions. Is the real exam like this?

What is the passing score for this exam? I am taking the test tomorrow. Will report.

My Study Material:

1. Craig Larman's - Applying UML and Patterns
2. Fowler-Scott - UML Distilled
3. IBM's ICE Exam

I have scored 90% on the ICE exams, but am still worried about this exam.

Just took the exam

Hi all !

I just finished the real test, and I passed with a 79 % score. I agree with the earlier postings, if you know the Larman book and Fowler's Distilled inside out and score about 75 to 80 % in the sample test you likely to pass the test. I also bought the Booch User's Guide but it was a waste of money with respect to studying for the test. It's a good (but expensive) book but you don't have to read it to pass the test. It is useful though as a reference book because it is much more detailed regarding the UML syntax and the different sorts of diagram than the other books I mentioned.

MY best recommendation is to do the sample tests as many times as possible, because after a while you start wondering why you can't score better than you do, even after doing the test a number of times. Then you start analyzing the questions in detail, and then you suddenly notice these small details in the questions you have previously overlooked (at least I did !) and then you start learning things. And these small details are very useful to have trained seeing when you are doing the real test.

I might mention that I have about a year's experience in OO programming Java and none in UML, so it took me about three months to study for the test.

/regards Patrick

Congratulations. Good job.
I have taken quite a few certifications, but I am unusually nervous about this one.

I am really going to cram with Larman, Fowler, ICE, UML24HOURS, and now brainbench the next few weeks.

Good luck everyone

Passing score

pfexa

I guess you had asked the passing score for the UML test. I think the passing score is 70%.
