Completed IBM 833/834

I've just completed IBM's 833 and 834 with 84% and 68% respectively. I have to say that 834 is much longer and tougher one than 833. I've heard some ppl. on the forum say that the test doesnt cover RUP but sadly it does
and thats what did me in. I had an overview of RUP (the phases, activities etc). This is necessary to ensure that you understand the jargon used in the exam like subsystem design, analysis mechanisms, architectural mechanisms, unify collaborations, unify use cases etc.It goes into such detail that there are questions expecting one to know the workflows in RUP and the activities under them.

The coverage of UML is pretty OK and a book like UML Distilled would suffice (though I would say reading "Learning UML from Oreilly" would be a good bet). Craig Larmans' book is a must read.
Try to find a book on RUP (to cover both the process, the product and the framework). I would suggest RUP Made Easy by Phillipe Krutchen/Per Scroll as a good introductory book.

I believe that the test itself should be named 'Object Analysis and Design with UML and RUP'.

All the best.

Could someone please reply with which version of Craig Larman's book is needed for exams 833 and 844. I believe the latest version is 3rd edition. I have the 2nd edition and was wondering if I will need the 3rd edition.

Hi. I have the second edition and it is about UML, Patterns and RUP, I read this book and it is great for the test 833/834, but I have to say you that
I read the DEV475 Course from IBM too, I have a copy of this document and the questions are very similar with the information contained in it

The past week I made the test 833 and passed with 100%, but I have reading that the test 834 is more difficult than the 833

If you want the PDF send me a message.

Hi everybody


Yesterday, I made the second test, I can say you that the test 834 is easier than 833 and I believe that is more interesting too, although the first test is the base to begin with the OOAD.

I passed the test with 96%, I made the test as yet because I didn't have time and money, the cost for this is the same 200 dollars.

You should not forget check the next URL http://certified-es.blogspot.com/ , here there are many questions about these tests, although the title is "Certified (En espaƱol)" many questions are in english.

I hope that you share your experience with us, and your mocks, emulators, pages, blogs and so on, about this certification.
