Which book to read?

Hi folks!

Can any one advise me of what book to buy to prepare for the exam 486?
Do you really think the books recommended by IBM are essential for my good studies?
Where can I find more resources about the whole content?


Thanks!

You must have at least UML Distilled & Applying UML and Patterns to prepare for the exam.

Whenever you find that you have difficulty understanding a particular concept in Larman & Fowler books, you can refer to other basic books on OOAD.

I highly recommend Object-Oriented Design Heuristics by Arthur J. Riel for beginners and intermediate level OO developers. Scott Ambler's Object Primer is a good read too.

Websites that you may find useful are :

www.ootips.org
www.objectmentor.com
www.martinfowler.com
www.craiglarman.com (Read : The Importance of Being Closed: The Open-Closed Principle, Protected Variation, and its Mechanisms)

You can do a search on google or vivisimo also. Also read the FAQ post on this forum.

Good luck.
Bala

P.S :
Also see the thread "Appying UML & Patterns Training Course". This is nice to have if you can afford it.

I would also strongly recommend UML and the Unified Process: Practical Object-Oriented Analysis and Design by Jim Arlow and Ila Neustadt

This relatively new book provides an excellent description of much of the UML syntax and semantics. It is highly readable and thorough in its coverage of the UML.
