Hi,
I scored 61% in the 486 exam. I had read Larman and Fowler 3 times each and had appeared for the sample test scoring passing marks.
Can anyone help me in what other books I should be reading to pass the exam. Any URLs would be helpful too.

Hi,
I think u should go thru some case studies and try to practically using uml in some of your projects.
That way u will understand where u lack. UML examination is not about syntaxes its about understanding processes, uml and ooad concepts.
The best thing is to go thru case studies and also try to include it into your project.
