Friends,
I got thru the exam today. I got the university registration as the case study. Even though the exhibits are lengthy, the question is being asked only on one aspect of it. Once we read the question carefully, we should be easily able to figure out the correct choice. Not many questions on design patterns though. I purchased the whizlabs simulator a week before the exam. That helped me in getting used to the exam pattern in terms of exhibits, assessing our speed. I read Larman once and Fowler twice, the second time one day before the test. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks.

Thanks Thomas. The exam had about 60% exhibits. There are some theory questions similar to the ones i posted. I should thank you, Ilja and everyone on this forum that helped me in making it. I was i a hurry when i posted the first message in this thread. Hence, I would like to add a little more info on the exam. Time should not be a constraint. We should get used to reading lengthy exhibits before going for the exam. All the questions are based on only one case study. The only thing that surprised me was not much being asked on design patterns. As i already mentioned, the key lies in not getting concerned about the length of the exhibits. If we examine them carefully, we can easily filter out the wrong items.

I should thank you, Ilja and everyone

me, I only tried to answer a few questions
Illja , definitely
everyone , only you can tell
Re : design patterns , that would have made it more complex for a OOAD UML exam Larman only covers a few patterns . When it comes to applying UML , perhaps testing on design patterns is a must.
I think the rules go as follows :
Simplicity rules over Design Patterns rules over Complexity.

Can someone please let me know where to start for understanding J2EE. I'm looking forward not to get into coding EJBs or something of that sort to start with. I want to first understand the big picture of the architecture, where the bits and pieces fit in. I have access to WebsphereAppServer. Are there any good free resources on the web for beginners.
