Passed 486

I just passed IBM 486. I thought the test was medium level in terms of difficulty. The only bad thing was the screen size in comparison to diagram size on questions with class and interaction diagrams. I skipped some questions because it was too frustrating to keep switching back and forth. Read the 2 recommended books and understand basic OO concepts and you'll pass. I thought the XML test was much harder.
