I didn't find 489 to be all that difficult - of all my exams, I think I actually did the best on this one (even considering I took it shortly after it came out, when the redbook wasn't finished yet). A little experience with WSAS goes a long way on this one. But to answer your question, it's similar in difficulty, or at least was when I took it in 2001, to the ICE exam.

Prasad,
At the time when I was studying for the exam, there were almost no materials. My preparations included some experience with WAS 4.0 and reading the beta versions of the 4.0 Redbook... and that's about it.
Sorry I'm not more helpful than that.
