I burned my free 340 voucher this morning. Now I am IBM Certified System Administrator - Websphere Application Server V 5.0. Passing score is 55%, I scored 55%. The actual test was harder than the assessment test. I spent most of my time studying SG24-6195-00. I scored lowest on Workload Management/Scalabilty/Failover. I did not buy anything. I only used downloaded materials from IBM. my SCWCD developer cert helped. I had no previous experience with WAS. I worked pretty hard on this for about four months. I'm still having trouble with the blimey thing. But I been cramming for the last week, and I saw a couple of things that may help me get my ear running.
