Can anyone provide help or sample questions
for ibm test 154?
I trying to get stuff to study for CIW Web Developer,
but the IBM test 154 counts as CIW Web Developer.

Hi,
I tried to find free stuff (mainly sample questions) for this test but unsuccessfully. Now I wait for ibm response if I need this (or CIW Web Developer) test to be ICSD.
Good luck!

Seems to me that IBM 154 has been retired, as you could not even find test information from the IBM exam list, and you could not find this test code in Prometric online registration system.

I just checked right after I saw your COMMENT.
I went to PROMETRIC and IBM Test 154 is Still There.
It was also listed as 1 of the test through
the WebSphere promotion of the 1st 2000 passing
scores to get a free voucher.

But from the test list:
http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/tests/index.shtml
IBM 154 has already been gone.

I have also checked with Prometric site, if I choose Hong Kong as the location, but that's very strange that I found some exams listed in there do not exist in the IBM exam list (e.g. IBM 266), while some exams that on the IBM exam list do not exist in the site (e.g. IBM 158).

For clarification, I guess you better contact IBM to see the latest information.

Hello,
I passed test 154 today (71%)... So, what can I say about it? It wasn't simple one (at least for me) - especially "utilizing business services" section because I'm not experienced in JMS and J2C etc.
My preparation:
- going through Marty Hall's Core Servlets (not cover some features as filters and listeners). useful for 1st and part of 2nd section.
- W3School tutorials - WML, SOAP, WSDL (only basic sources)
- Sun tutorials - JMS, JAXM, JAX-RPC
- google searchs
- Sample Test - absolutely useless, real test isn't so easy

Good luck!
Michal

I'd like to get some Sun certs ... but my employer is IBM partner so I'm afraid that he'll prefer (pay) other IBM test. However SCJP is required for ICED so I believe in that he'll accept it.
