And for many people, that fastest route is LVOOP
I'm sure that is true; however, it seems to me that...
a) LVOOP will be the faster route only for those developers already experienced in OOD/OOP, and...
b) Experienced LVOOP developers will get limited value out of posted examples, while at the same time...
c) Inexperienced LVOOP developers will have a hard time understanding the design decisions and associated tradeoffs.
For those on the fence about using LVOOP on the CLD, I admit I used it on my CLD exam. (At least I'm pretty
sure I did... it was several years ago.) In my case I got a coupon for a free exam so the cost of failure would only be a hit to my pride. I decided to use LVOOP partly to prove to myself I could do it, and partly because my thought process was so deeply OOP oriented I felt like it would be harder to switch back to traditional techniques for the exam. At the end of 4 hours I was not confident my solution would pass. It did, but in retrospect I think it would have been easier had I stuck with traditional techniques.

Yes, the QSM is flexible. So is Jello. That doesn't make it good construction material.
