Hi Gaurav:

Cool..go ahead with your exam confidently..

Its not very difficult if you have really understood the basic simple concepts such as what is a usecase exactly, how to identify classes etc...

Out of my experience I feel, we need to answer all the q's one afetr the other, except that we just leave the ones that appear to take a lot of time.

We will surely have time at the end, thats when we can coolly think about those q's and then get the answers easily.

All the best ! Just think coolly, and you will do well.

First, something I found helpful, and it holds true for most exams that IBM and Sun offer - take notes on which questions trip you up and why while you're taking the exam. I found (even on 486) that I often found answers to items I was questionable about by reading other questions.

And second, don't let your apprehensions get in your way. 486 was the exam I most feared when it came to plotting out a curriculum for myself, and thus-far, I think it's the one I got the highest score on. I found the books to be good resources and wonderful for preparation.

Good luck!
