Hi All,

My company wants me to write 285 Exam (WSAD 5.0)
I checkd the IBM site to get the sample test,
it seems the sample test is a paid one. Any idea
where i can find some free test just to get an idea.

Please also tell me what is the passing percentage.
I have objectives with me for 285 and preparing thru'
red books but dont know how the questions will appear.

guys its very urgent, i have just 4 days left to take
the exam

thnks in advance

That's great~~~ I always wanna my company paid for my tests, and she always does.

There are very few resources for IBM exams. Prime is one of them. You may try searching this forum to see whether any people posted the question set out.


Please also tell me what is the passing percentage.


Total # of questions is 51, and the passing rate is 53%.


I have objectives with me for 285 and preparing thru'
red books but dont know how the questions will appear.


Except Redbookm I guess there is only 1 book which design for this exam:
An Introduction to Web Application Development with IBM WebSphere Studio: WebSphere Certification Study Guide, by Gary Craig and Peter Jakab
http://www.mc-store.com/5213.html

You may try to find it out.

Personally, I feel redbook is not enough definitely, as it is not design for you to pass exam. IBM 288 is a good example, some questions appear in the exam even do not mention in the book. Thus, you may really need Craig's book to prepare for the exam.

Best wishes.

Nick
 
I miss the old days when I would think up a sinister scheme for world domination and you would show a little emotional support. So just look at this tiny ad:
