I really really really wanted to take the IBM 486 exam but I only have about 15 days left. can anyone tell me 1.) can it be taken as a standalone test? I have not given any IBM test till date so would I still receive a certificate If I give tihs exam?? 2.) is 15 days enough time to study for it?? 3.) is thera any other exam from any other company that has the same test objectives as the 486?
3. Sun has an Enterprise Architect, not sure how similar it is, maybe someone else can answer that.
UML & OOA/D knowledge is basis for Part-2 (assignment) of Sun's Enterprise Architect Exam as it contributes to 30-40% of assignment. But on-top-of-this, you also need to know J2EE architecture, Design Patterns, Security etc.,
