UML Distilled as Supplement to Cameron's classics?

I have Cameron's two certification guides and I have been studying off and on for a while. I also have UML Distilled which I use for work often, but it covers lots of topics like Use Cases and Sequence diagrams. While I use these a lot at work (I am a general-purpose architect), what specific UML diagrams are covered on the exam? i.e. what parts of UML Distilled should I use to supplement Cameron's books?


From Amazon's book description:
Topics covered: UML basics, analysis and design, outline development (software development process), inception, elaboration, managing risks, construction, transition, use case diagrams, class diagrams, interaction diagrams, collaborations, state diagrams, activity diagrams, physical diagrams, patterns, and refactoring basics

I don't know about UML Distilled, but for reference the only exposure I had to UML going into my SCJA exam was the presentation from Cameron's books, and I scored perfect on that section. So if you have done some serious UML modelling in the past I can't imagine you would have that much trouble with that section.

When I die, I want people to look at me and say "Yeah, he might have been crazy, but that was one zarkin frood that knew where his towel was."

Thanks for the tip.
Love your tagline, by the way.

I always keep my towel handy - never know when the opportunity to catch another ride on a passing ship will present itself.

I agree. Here's the link:
