I am going to write IBM 486 on coming tuesday...did Larman, Fowler and Mocker/ICE/BALA test ......scored in ICE after first round of study 52% and second round in 5 day 72%........bit aprehensive and anxious as it is more of conceptual exam abd mock scres are not good..... need some last moment advice for revising before Final day.
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.
