Dear all,
I will prepare for IBM Test 486 (OOAD).
What books should I read?

You're going to get the standard answer around here: Applying UML and Patterns by Larman and UML Distilled by Fowler, which are the two books recommended by IBM.
That being said, also go to as they have plenty of good review material there. And I found OOAD@Whiz useful for review.

SCJP/SCSNI/SCBCD/SCWCD/SCDJWS/SCMAD/SCEA/MCTS/MCPD... and so many more letters than you can shake a stick at!
I agree. Here's the link:
