Little variance in my scrores with respect to each objective category ...
Questoins on WSDL were no-brainers ...
More UDDI questions that I had anticipated ...
Still trying to figure out why there were 6 or 7 EJB questions.

Hardest exam I've ever taken, including anything I saw in college.

Dennis, Congratulations!

Ill prepare for this exam someday. Im zero on this as of now.

May I ask why you think this is the hardest exam you have ever taken?

Is it like, very big scope of topics to study?

I saw your post before on 'hands on'; did you ever find any material(like book, or red books) that have 'complete'(all essential stuff you will use at real job) hands on?

Which material helped you best? the book by Sams? by RMH? others?

Sorry for the marathon questions,...just looking ahead few weeks from now, when I'll tackle this road.

Jesus Angeles,

The material is out there. You'll have to do some searching though. I found RMH's book the most important of all. Now that there will be a book out specifically for the exam, (I believe the author is Habibi), perhaps you should start there. For me, the most difficult part was actually building web services. Most of the products out there are not as mature as they could be. I ran into bug after bug, which really taxed my learning efforts. I became well aquainted with JBoss, Jonas, Sun 1 AS and various versions of Tomcat in order to implement/practice the exam objectives. None of these products will let you implement everything you'll need to know for the exam alone. Does this answer your questions? Also, the study materials by MZ helped me as well.

yes,

im waiting for the habibi book,...otherwise ill prepare some other way

for hands on, which was the best material you found? ideally implementing as much as theory as possible? or at least which one has least bugs =). i value hands-on as much as 50% of my preparation.

indeed, such books which have code bugs really make learning 4 to 20 times longer than necessary....

thanks dennis
