Can anybody give me UML 833 Material. And exact guidance how to start and how to go about this exam? How many days it needed to complete the study?

Is UML Distill sufficient to score the exam?

Thankyou in advance.

Hi Bhakti

You need 3 resources to prepare for IBM 833.

1. UML Distilled (or any UML2.0 book with details on new diagrams like composite structure, timing, interaction overview etc).
2. Craig Larman's 3rd Edition book to understand the RUP (specially 4+1 view, architect anaylsis, Use case analysis etc, Entity, Controller, Boundry classes and its purpose etc)
3. Most Import source of all. Rational Method Composer (RMC). Search internet for IBM RMC and download this from IBM website. Once installed (with a free registered ID), open the tool and launch help -> RMC Process Browser. In the process browser, click on tab 'team' -> 'Disciplines' -> 'Analysis & Design'. Find out 833 exam objectives under Analysis and Design and read it throughly.

Once prepartion is done, do some mock questions.

Good luck

Hi All,
I have good knowledge in UML. I would like to go for OMG OCUP Fundamentals. Can you guys help me out in getting a voucher and list of prometric test centers located in Bangalore, India.

May be this is not the proper place of your question. Anyway, OCUP exam facility is not available in India. Check the official OMG registration site : or
