OCUP 2 Certification Guide: Preparing for the OMG Certified UML 2.5 Professional 2 Foundation Exam both teaches UML 2.5 and prepares candidates to become certified. UML (Unified Modeling Language) is the most popular graphical language used by software analysts, designers, and developers to model, visualize, communicate, test, and document systems under development.
UML 2.5 has recently been released, along with a new certification program for practitioners to enhance their current or future career opportunities. There are three exam levels, Foundation, Intermediate, and Advanced. This exam, Foundation, is a prerequisite for the higher levels.
Author Michael Jesse Chonoles is a lead participant in the current OCUP 2 program – not only in writing and reviewing all the questions, but also in designing the goals of the program. This book distills his experience in modeling, mentoring, and training. Because UML is a sophisticated language, with 13 diagram types capable of modeling any type of modern software system, it takes users some time to become proficient. This book will explain the material in the Foundation exam, and includes many practice questions for the candidate, such as sample problems similar to those found on the exam, and detailed explanations of why correct answers are correct and why wrong answers are wrong.
- Written to prepare candidates for the UML 2.5 exam while they learn UML
- Illustrated with UML diagrams to clarify every concept and technique
- Offers hints for studying and test-taking based on the specific nature and structure of the Foundation Level exam
- Includes practice exam material, sample questions and exercises, warnings, tips, and sidebars throughout
