Today I've passed the OCUP Advanced with scores 50/58. The exam covers many elements more than in Superstructure Specification -- You have to know a little about the Infrastructure specification and OCL Language Specification. Like the lower level, I hate it ^^, the exam still has several ambiguous choices.

Note: i got 61/70 at Intermediate level and 72/80 at Fundamental level

I haven't visited the saloon since I passed the OCUP Fundamental.
People sometimes ask me about the OCUP exam. Although I'm quite busy, I'm glad to help you who interested in this exam.

Special thank for saloon and good luck for everyone who going to take any exams.

Hy Choopong Songcharoenkij,

in your opinion is worth taking this examination -I mean the intermediate and advenced levels-.

Do you believe that your architectural skills have been improved?

thanks for your information.

Hello -
I am almost finished with the morgan kaufman uml study guide and the UML 2.0 spec. I should be taking my fundimental and intermedate in the next couple of weeks.

Do you have any recommendations on what needs to be studied for the advanced?

Hi, everyone.
About the fundamental level, I already posted much details of it. You can use the search feature for convenience. For the intemediate and advanced level, you can study according to the exam-area provided at OMG website. If you had ever passed the fundamental level, I believe that the next levels are not you problem. Don't worry much about it.

Many people have many doubts about OCUP. The level of the exam DO NOT completely reflect the real-world level of your knowledge of UML DESIGN. Suppose that someone passed the advanced exam, it isn't the right way you think he is the best designer (although he may be ^^).

The level of the exam expresses the area of specification you will know. The OCUP level are set according to packages defined by UML specification. Yes, the specification has Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced package for each diagram e.g. Basic Activities, Intermediate Activities... If you planned to take the intermediate exam, you will know all elements defined in the intermediate package of each diagram. You don't have to remember what you have done in the fundamental exam. Therefore, the intermediate is not harder than the fundamental, just open the book and read another pages.

The three OCUP exams are designed to cover the UML specification. I passed all of them, that is, I read every pages of the specification and know all elements defined in it. Again, don't think I'm able to do the best design because of getting OCUP certified. ^^

For who are finding the resources, The OCUP website is updated. It contains sample questions and more details than before. You can visit http://www.umlcert.org/en/index.html

Peter, to complete advanced exam, you need to know the infrastructure specification and basic OCL expression. The exam covers just infra and OCL basics, so you shouldn't waste you time reading the abstract syntax and concrete syntax presented in the infra and OCL specs.
