IBM 833 vs OCUP (OMG) fundamental

Why do people always go for IBM 833 than the OMG exam?

I'm planning for one certification in the UML and now need to decide which one. Any help?

Regards,

People don't always do that (see my signature).

I was also planning to do OCUP exam but now have decided against it.

Reasons -
a. No book is available in India to study OCUP
b. Exam course is not well defined
c. OCUP exam is very expensive in India (approx 11,000 INR) as compared to IBM exams

Hello Abhay


a. You can consult any UML book for exam study
b. exam cost is prohibitive
c. Not very famous/well accepted like SUN/IBM exams, few people know what is OMG certification.
