This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I can't offer a meaningful answer to what you're asking - I haven't, myself, taken the OMG test, or seen candidates come in for interviews here listing it. I know that I found IBM 486 useful, but only in terms of confirming to myself that I understand UML and as a confidence-booster towards the SCEA exam.
But, I would put in something that might help your deciding - 486 isn't a stand-alone certification. IBM uses it as a component of developer-level certifications, in concert with other exams (you don't get a separate certificate for 486, but rather just your score report). Food for thought.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
