Hello all,
I would like to take the IBM test 486. Can anyone suggest me any study materials, e.g. books and mock exam site or paper?

Thank you very much

My resources were UML Distilled (2nd edition) by Martin Fowler and Kendall Scott. I also used Applying UML and Patterns (2nd Edition) by Craig Larman. I found both books to be very useful but I found Craig Larman's book the most useful for the exam. Martin Fowler's book is very nice to read and provides a lot of concepts to use when designing your own code but I found most of these concepts to be "personal preference" and are not official UML terms. All in all, both are excellent resources.
Good luck!
