Hello everyone,

I passed part-1 yesterday with 65%. Though this score is not great but I am Happy,at least I passed this exam.
I studied for 3 months, 1.5 to 2 hrs/day plus some extra hrs on Sat/Sunday.

Thanks everyone for your help and valuable suggestions.

I must admit this exam is very tough. Most of the questions (85-90%) were lengthy and I failed to understand 2-3 questions.

I used Whizlab mock exams. I liked it but it is not enough to pass the exam. I would suggest to explore others mock exams too. Also Try some following exams too.

I also used Amritendu De's book, this is great book to clear your concept. Thanks Amritendu De for this great book.

I have used same notes/books which already described in this forum.

Now after taking (1 week ) break, I want to start for part-2. I don't have any past design experience and I am weak in UML too. So first I want to prepare for UML then plan to download assignment.

Any suggestions what is the good way to start for UML?

Again Thanks every one for your valuable help!

Congratulations on going over the first hurdle successfully Sandeep.

UML Distilled by Martin Fowler is a good guide on UML.

Good luck with your assignment
