Talking cleared with 77%

Hi guys,

Alhamdolillah, I cleared the IBM-486 Test with 77% marks..

First of all, I would like to thank Bala & CFW for their excellent work in preparing the sample questions and also by providing study material.. It was really helpful. Also, I am thankful to each one in this forum be helping me, directly or indirectly.

The marks are as follows -

Develompent process - 71%
Requirement Modeling - 70%
Architecture - 86%
static modeling - 75%
Dynamic Modeling - 92%
Design & Impl Tech - 57%

I started my preparation couple of months back..But due to some unexpected reasons I could not carry on. My actual preparation started just 3 wks ago.
*I went thru Fowler book twice, First time i just read it as a story book and second time a quick but careful reading.
*I read Larman book Once.
*Fowler & Larman bullet notes provided by our great guys
*These forums and yahoo groups.
*and ofcourse the Sample questions by Bala & CFW (thnks once again)

While i took the sample test, i could hardly score 55%, it was quite depressing.. But I noticed that in the discussion forum a few have agreed that some of the questions answered were wrong... Hence, I request you (Bala & CFW) to update your answers at the following URL's

http://www.objectsbydesign.com/proj...-answers-1.html
http://www.objectsbydesign.com/proj...-answers-2.html

http://www.objectsbydesign.com/proj...-answers-1.html
http://www.objectsbydesign.com/proj...-answers-2.html
(I noticed that you have been telling us time and again that the xml file will be updated. But unfortunately, you have not done it as yet. We would like you to help us by updating them too)

I might have taken the answers from old repository.

Please do let me know if i can help you preparing, those who are going to takeup the exam.

Thanks

Hi Danny,

you must, MUST read this two books:
1. Fowler's UML Distilled 2nd edition, and
2. Larman's Applying UML and Patterns

->apart from these books, u should get register to yahoo group called ooad_meda forum you can find lots of good material there

-> the links i have given in my post, just go thru those sample questions.. it will definately help you..

-> dont forget to make sure that u get 17" monitor to write the exam else ur half of the time will go in scrolling.. since Exam questions are 60:40 on exhibits and non exhibits respectively.

keep an eye on this forum and in javaranch forum

dont hasitate to ask any prob u have

all the best
tausif

hi,


1. Whom to contact for training.
- I think its better to prepare urself. Its not that difficult that u need to join some institute to prepare. But may be u r not familier with UML & coding so u may find it bit difficult. LETS SEE WHAT OTHER SAYS

2. Where to register for training and certification
- see this link:
http://saloon.javaranch.com/cgi-bin...26&t=002653

3. What will be the cost.
- the cost for the test alone is just around INR 3800/-
- the cost for the whizlab test will be around 10 USD(roughly)

regards

Talking Passed

Hi Tausifk,

Thanks God (Alhamdolillah), I Passed the IBM-486 Exam last tuesday

As a matter of fact i have not got a high mark, but i doesn't matter any more , anyway i got 74%

The marks are as follows -

Develompent Process - 86%
Requirement Modeling - 40%
Architecture - 100%
static modeling - 75%
Dynamic Modeling - 85%
Design & Imp. Tech. - 57%

As you can see, what made my marks low is "Requirement Modeling"

It was a tough exam, i burnt all the the time of the exam. It was full of diagrams.

I started my actual preparation first 2 months ago.. The last two 10 days i was just doing mock exams.

Here is my notes for whom wants to prepare for the exam:

- Read Larman Book Once
- Read Fowler Book 2 times
- Use WhizLabs, they very good (don't get desperate if you didnt pass the diagonistic and the first exam , this what happened with me....at the final i got 46/56 )
- Do the Mocks provided by CFW & Bparanj (these are excellent exams, thanks to the great guys)
- Read the study notes http://www.objectsbydesign.com/book..._uml.html#notes

After i finished studying i took the IBM ICE sample test, i cleared it with 82%, but unfortunately i found it provided by "Mikalai Zaikin" in the forums
at http://java.boot.by/magnet-mocker/download/engine.html &
http://java.boot.by/magnet-mocker/download/exams.html

I compared his exam with the exam i took, its actually the same except for 2 questions

Oh , i almost forget, guys really you have to get not less than 17" monitor, i really read about this in the forum but i didnt give it a great attention.
Its really worthy if u got this size of monitor, the diagrams were sooooo big.

Finally, I want to Thank all the guys here in this forum, your nots, discussion and mocks were very helpfull
