I took the exam today and passed with 85%. Here is the break-up.
Dev. Process 100
Req Modeling 77
Architecture 85
Static Modeling 100
Dynamic Modeling 75
Design & Imple 71
It is my second attempt. In the first attempt, I took the exam after studying Amigos books and got 58%. After that I studied Larman and Fowlers. I should say these are excellent practical books and a must read. The posts here are very much useful and thanks to all who are contributing to this forum. Excellent Work!!.

Adnan,
Read Fowler's UML Distilled and Larman's Applying UML and Patterns 2-3 times and practice the questions in IBM ICE
Sample tests and go through the posting in this forums.They
are the fundamentals for getting succeed.The questions in the sample test are bit easier but they are the fundamental questions. The questions in the actual exam could be a bit lenghty but the concepts are the same.I did not see a single question from sample test in the actual exam directly, but indirectly yes.Hope this helps.
Regards
Ashok

Hi,
This Shankar from Chennai-India. I have plans to do my IBM UML certification.
One of the book suggested for certification is Applying UML and Patterns : An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design.
There is another book written by same author (craig larman). THey say, its the secong edition.
Which is...., Applying UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design and the Unified Process.
The table of contents provided for these two books are entirely diffrent. Which one is the right book suggested for certification.
Thanks & Regards,
Shankar S

Sankar,
It doesn't matter much.But we always try to read the latest edition right, so use the 2nd edition if possible.
