Today I have Passed XML with 68% from 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM and Oracle PL/SQL paper with 77% from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM. I have only 3 weeks for these papers b/c my 4th year exams and thesis are ahead. I am expecting a good score in this paper but ... just cleared. Now I got 3 certifications in this month. (certification month)
Thanks to all of u and specially XML Guru Ajith for help and guidance. XML bible is very good study guide but very verbose. Inside XML is to the point and covers all exam objectives. Tahir Mansoori SCJP 91% SCWCD 84% IBM OOA&D UML 92% IBM XML 68% OCP PL/SQL 77% Now what to do next ... Any suggestion ...

Good job Tahir!. Can you give some tips on your XML preparation and the exam?. I am very happy for you. How was your OCP test preparation? Louis. [This message has been edited by Louis Fegun (edited September 28, 2001).]
Thanks louis for your appreciation. As i said I have only three weeks to study for both papers. I read XML bible first . Then Inside XML for schema and other things which are not covered in Bible. and then W3C specs. . XML inside is to the point book. But remeber, If u read all the available books, still paper asks u for only 20% from them, all other questions are scenario based like OOA&D w UML paper from IBM. I have only two days left for XML paper, i asked my friend about how difficult PL/SQL paper, he told me that it's matter of one day for u. So i register for that paper and after that bought book for PL/SQL and it takes my breath .... Alas! Ajith. I can't go for vacations (where is Bahamas?).With these certifications in previous months, I am not prepared for my final semester papers and thesis. And it's really hard. Thinking of New Exam after my papers.... What to do Next. Tahir Mansoori
