deepika , have you tried preassessment testson the site. they have mentioned on their site that you have to take pre assessment test , as many times as you can .because the questions are selected from the vast pool of the database. It can give you good idea of the actual exam. Please do that first. Pass the pre-assessment test with 75% or more marks . get the electronic coupon & appear for the real test.
have you finished books as mentioned on IBM's site ?
1. UML distilled: - martin fowler
2. applying patterns with UML : - Craig larman

become strong conceptually & you can pass any test.
I hope this is helpful to you.

Thanx shailesh , for your suggestion.
right now i am studying Instant UML by Muller , Wrox Pub.
any comments for it...
actually i wanted to listen experience from real exam , like it is available for Programmer certification, Then its very easy for others to prepare for exam, isn't it ?

deepeka , soory to reply you so late. I think you should start with Martin Fowler's book only. Then you do Craig Larman's book.
Instant UML is good book , provided you have basic knowledge of uml. for that there is no alternative to martin fowler's book. If You are in india , Martin Fowler's book is available at low cost in india. You will get for about RS. 180 /- or 190 /- after discount in india. Larman's book is slightly costly around 360 /- or 400 /-.
Have you gone through preassessment questions ? i earnestly request you to go throug hthat & try as many questions as you can. that will give you more help. If I happen to give exam before you I will definitely tell you about the pattern & no real exam questions can be discussed as per the rules of this discussion forum.
bye . Hope this is helpful.
