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?

please help me

1.It can be taken as a standalone test but you won't recive any certificate for it.

2. It depends how much you know already, i you have a fair knowledege of UP, GRASP and designpatterns it is possible. Take the mockexams to find out,

3. Sun has an Enterprise Architect, not sure how similar it is, maybe someone else can answer that.

Good Luck

Don't buy the whizlabs, the qusestions there are very different from the real exam.
Do the magnetmock exams instead.

It will be tough if you don't know RUP or any Design pattern but anything is possible! =)

I think this is the link.

"java.boot.by/magnet-mocker". in that there are also instructions on how to run the exam mocker.

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.,

Hi:

I am preparing for 486.

I referred to Bala's guide.

I could not find the links to chapters 5 and 6.

Can somebody please let me know , why the links are not opening for those chapters, I could open for the first 4 chapters.

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Thanks,

IBM is extending some of their exams for 6 months. Check this out. You might get credit for a combined 486 with one of the others.
