HI guys,
I just passed the exam 288 " Web Services" from IBM last Saturday. I would like to share my experience for those who are thinking to take it:
1- Read the J2EE Web services book (author: Richard Monson-Haefel).
2- Run the examples in the IBM book more than once if you can. Big part of the exam is covered in those examples.

3- Take Ice exam many times before even you start reading the books or run the examples. It will give you a clear idea about things you should pay more attention to.
4- Read other articles about UDDI, SOAP, WSDL, JSR 109, JAX-RPC.
Here are some useful articles:

Thank you ever so much, Mikalai! )))
Certainly I know about sample test.
Abdennour suggested to pass ICE test MANY times that's why I decided that there might be another free source of sample tests....)))
