I am also interested in taking the OMG certification, but don't know how to prepare for it. I looked at the UML 2.0: Superstructure document, and really, how does anyone able to read anything like that?

Backup book you can see Scott Ambler...... The Elements of UML Style
UML practise exam I havent heard of but you can google up......
The basic exam is easy you dont have to purchase a mock exam for that..... Why spend money on mock exams better use that money to buy the book...... In all my certifications PMP included I havent seen any mock exam helping me the questions at the back of each chapter is enough to pass the exam and also nobody will ask you for score so you dont have to score 100% to get certified only inexperience people write score after there certification if your intent is to know the subject and pass the exam to prove yourself and your self only (no body cares about certification they only cares whether you have experinece in the subject matter you have to implement in your work/workplace the ideas you get from knowing the subject) that you have given effort and time to know the subject.
Have a nice day..... Go for knowledge man its worth every morning you will feel good about yourself that you know and implement the knowledge practically and apply common sense ......
One of our professors back in my Engineering College in Calcutta use to say
Engineering Is Common Sense.....
I think Software engineering also follows the same fundamental adde to enginnering its also a craft so sharpen your tools and apply common sense the world will respect you.....
Yikes-----This was a little big ...

Cheers for good advice, actually you endorsed my personal openion about engineering that "Engineering is common sense".
Also for pushing me a bit as i am too lazy these days...he he
I dont tend to memorize things to be honest, I believe in solving the problem but mostly get cought in complience with the processes and artifects etc. Yes,I do understand that does help in larger projects.
