Exam detail could be found from:
http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/tests/obj286.shtml

where should I buy the Voucher

You dont need to purchase any vouchers. When you register for your exam, you are paid online as well.


Any Study materil and Free Moc Exms Links would be greatly appreciated.

You could find study material here:
http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/tests/edu286.shtml

There should be no free mock exams.

Hello all,

Is it just me, or does it seem like there is very little in the way of helpful information on what to study for this exam?

I took the sample test tonight as described on http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/tests/sam286.shtml and I got a passing 67%, but I had to make educated guesses on a ton of the questions (I wouldn't feel comfortable taking the real thing with my current knowledge).

I copy/pasted the questions to a local file so I could study them more, but how close are these questions to the real thing?

Why isn't there better documentation on what exactly to study for this exam? Did you simply use WSAD help files?

The site http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/tests/edu286.shtml advocates reading TWO books on design patterns, and there were maybe 2-3 questions on the sample regarding patterns. Additionally, it suggests reading a WAS redbook?? and when you're done with those books, read the entire JSP and Servlet specification??

I'm not a certification guru (I only have SCJP), but I thought surely there would be more directed study material.

Can anyone point me to a "one stop shop" for study material on this exam?

Thanks in advance,

Aaron.

IBM's exams are quite different with SUN. There are less resources you can use. I guess the most effective way is to take IBM's course, however, they are very expensive.

Anyway, I dont have much knowledge on IBM's exams, usually, I used Redbooks only. But sometimes there are cool books like Applying UML and patterns for 486, Developing J2EE applications using WSAD for 287. But these are exceptional cases.

Good luck for seeking 286 materials.
