Hi, I am confused OMG UML and IBM-486: I intend to take SCEA (of course the incoming new version SCEA), the UML is a must thing for this exam.

For OCUP(OMG UML) and IBM 486, if you have no intention to go for ICED, and if you are intent to get a certifiate on UML, it is better for you to go for OCUP, as the cost of the 2 exams are similiar.

For SCEA, I guess general knowledge will help, as SUN seems not expecting us to draw complicated UML diagrams, as UML is a mean to tell people what you are talking about, in a simple way.

Going personnally for the OCUP - UML, also with the intent to go for the SCEA sometimes. I liked the 3-level concept. The negative side is that there is less specific study material for OCUP -tests (mocks exams, study notes, etc.) than for the 486.

Good luck !
