I passed IBM Test 486 with 90% by following the study advice on this forum. I added the following twists: 1) I copied IBM's test objectives into StarOffice then filled in all the objectives I could with quotes and page numbers from Fowler and Larmar. It seemed like Larmar matched a lot closer to the objectives. 2) Each time I took the practice test I printed the questions I wasn't sure about and used keyword search to find all discussion of those questions in the forum. Just like others on this forum I scored 5 points higher on the real test than I did on the IBM practice test. Now I'm on to SCJD. See you in that forum! http://www.ByteworksInc.com ------------------
Wow! Congrats on your score! Were you familiar with UML before you began studying? Thanks for the tips!

Actually, I was. I've first got UML Distilled in the Spring of 2000 when I started my first OO project. I was responsible for the Rational Rose models for the project for the last 18 months. I guess I sort of took that on the job experience for granted. I still think the approach of using Fowler and Larmar is the best approarch whatever your experience level.

Hello Guys, I just read some of the posts here and became aware of this IBM certification. However I could not find the fee structure of these certifications on the net, specially the 486 one. Is it different for different countries, and where can I find it? Regards Mohit Joshi
