I passed the IBM 486 exam with 70%.
I should say that the exam was a tough one. I prepared from 4 books - Rumbaugh (OMT), Booch (User Guide), Larman and Fowler giving stress on the latter two.
The forum helped me a lot in passing the exam.
I have one query that Rational has a similar certification examination in OOAD (site info : http://www.rational.com/worldwide/india/certification_exam.jsp#Length). Now which exam has more acceptability - The IBM one or the Rational one.

Congratulations Ritwik
Thanks for the link for the Rational test.
If you have already passed Test 486, I believe that is more than enough to present yourself as a person who knows about UML.So I wouldn't recommend the OOAD test from Rational.
But, I think it would be interesting to take the other tests by Rational on their products/Technologies RUP,Rose 2000e, Test Studio and ClearQuest, especially since these products are the best in the market so far!
Would like some comments from my fellow JavaRanchers!
Thanks,
Sandeep
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
