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, and with it a new certification program for practitioners to enhance their current or future career opportunities. There are three exam levels: Foundation, Intermediate, and Advanced. The exam covered in this book, 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 effective resource will explain the material in the Foundation exam and includes many practice questions for the candidate, including sample problems similar to those found in the exam, and detailed explanations of why correct answers are correct and why wrong answers are wrong.

Key Features

  • Written to prepare candidates for the OCUP 2 Foundation level 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 points to remember throughout


Anyone interested in taking the UML 2.5 exam including developers, software engineers, system engineers, and students studying these disciplines
