Good job!Daniel.
This is the highest score I have ever known for test 158.
What material do you use for preparation? How do you prepare for WSAD? And do you have any suggestion for ppl like me who is going to take the test in near future?
Thanks.

Congrats!! Daniel,
You have passed the test with a very good score. Most people pass in sixties. I plan to take this test very soon.
2 topics which I am very much concerned abt are
a) Design and Build reusable enterprise components.
b) Develop the clients which that access the enterprise components.
I have read EJB specs 2.0 but the kind of questions they ask look pretty confusing.
Suggestions.
bye.
Sachin

Hello People,
Dennis the material that I read:
* Specifications EJB 1.1 only, JSP 1.1 and Servlets 2.2 (I did read it when I was studying for IBM 483)
* PDFs available in Infocenter about EJB, JSP and Servlets. This are important, they focus in IBM extensions that is required in exam.
* WebSphere Estudio Application Developer and Web Services, WebSphere Estudio Application Developer Programming Guide and Web Services Wizardy with WebSphere Studio Application Developer. I read them for prepare me for WSAD.
* IBM's Rebook about Connection Pooling
* IBM Websphere 4.0 Advanced Edition Handbook.
Dennis are you UML 486 certified, arent you? I plan to take this exam. What do you recommend?

hello Daniel,
There is a good forum specialized for 486,very good!

The "UML distilled" is a must read book. Craig Larman's book is also important. Read "UML distilled" twice and craig's book once, I think you are ready to take the test

Hello Sachin..
You must be careful! I dont remember questions about EJB 2.0 in exam. I recomend that you study only EJB 1.1. Look in WebSphere's infocenter about IBM extensiond, it's very important.
