Easiest WebSphere certification?

What do you think would be the easiest WebSphere certification?

Many of the exams I've looked at require reading 1000+ page IBM red books that aren't exam focused.

If I wanted to get something quickly what would be the best exam to go for?

I have some experience with WebSphere studio but you could assume, for the sake of argument, that I know nothing!

Thanks for any suggestions.

You might try IBM 285 (WSAD v5.0) or IBM 255 (RAD v6.0).

The exams test your knowledge on how to use WSAD or RAD only.

Hi Nick,

Thanks for your reply again - you're very helpful!

I was thinking that either the 255 or 285 exams would be preferable.

From what I understand the 255 exam is quite new so I would need to read the red book for this.

Whereas reading part of the Kuschner book "Developing J2EE Applications with WebSphere Studio" should cover the 285 exam?

This would probably lean me towards 285.

Thanks again!

I prefer new things than old stuffs.

Howard's book is for IBM 287, not IBM 285.
