Hello everyone,
I just finished taking SCBCD and SCWCD. I am interested in taking the certification exam for IBM websphere studio. I am new to Websphere. I have delpoyed some sample aplications in weblogic!!.
Going thro the web pages of IBM (the exam specifications) I was rather confused !!!
Is it possible for me to take exam 287 before taking exam 285?
Or is it like that I should follow the order like 285, 286 and then 287?
I dint see any pre-requisite exams for exam 286 or 287 !!!

Any help in this direction would greatly be appriciated :-)
Thanks
Hari

Hello Hari,
There are no prerequisites whatsoever. You can take whichever test you like. It depends on what you perceive to be your level of expertise.

I am taking XML exam now, following it with UML, then j2ee connectivity and then 287!!! Or mabe I would take 486 last as suggested by you !!
So thats quite a long time atleast another 2 months!! (Most probably in March !!) Anyways got XML exam comming up next week ...
and I am getting the book written by you for the 287 exam after seeing the wonderful reviews from the readers !!!
Thanx and Merry Christmas!!!
