Exam fee in US is $150.
The only previous background which can be useful is SGML, the markup language, from which both XML and HTML descended. But SGML language is too complicated and for this reason never was in broad use. So there are not so many developers with SGML background XML was designed with purpose to be easy and not to require any prior background � you really do not need any special background to clear the exam. I cannot think about any other specific background which can help you, besides general computer science knowledge.
Software: to edit your XML/DTD/Schema (and validate them): XML Spy (they have free 30-day evaluation version)
To work with DOM or SAX: proper parser.
To work with XSLT: XSLT processor, such as Saxon or Xalan
- all this software (and even more!) can be found on www.xmlsoftware.com

To write XML documents and DTD/Shemas, you can use any simple text editor, because they all are nothing more than plain texts. But for convenience you can use XML Spy.
To validate your XML documents against DTD: you can use either XML spy again or any validating parser, for example, Xerces.
To read and modify your XML programmatically via DOM or SAX you need a parser, for example Xerces.
To work with XSLT your need XSLT processor, for example Xalan, and I believe Xalan includes Xerces in its download.
So minimally you need to download and install:
1. XML Spy download
2. Xalan download
