There are 3 categories of UML Diagrams:

Structure Diagrams: Diagrams that model elements of a business domain or system irrespective of time.

Behavior Diagrams: Diagrams that model the functional or behavioral aspects of a system or business process. These diagrams place less emphasis on detailed interactions and focus more on the overall functionality and flow of a business process or system.

Interaction Diagrams: A subset of behavior diagrams, these diagrams place a heavy emphasis on the interactions between object of a business process or system.

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
