Ajit,
In your detailed post on the IBM certification study materials, you had mentioned Egroups discussion board on XML certification. The link provided in your post does not seem to be valid. Do you know if the group still exists or not?

Thanks,

Hmm...I noticed it today, its gone!
I know eGroups was acquired by Yahoo!, but I was able to browse the xml-cert group even after the acquisition. But when I searched today I was not able to find it.
There was some concern about 'real questions' being discussed in this group. Since it was an un-moderated discussion board, people didn't heed the warnings. So I'm guessing, may be they shut it down because of legal reasons.
Anyway, as my post reads, it wasn't a great group either. For beginners it provided ample information, but mostly redundant stuff. Don't worry, we can do a lot more here at Javaranch.
I can help you out if you have any questions about the certification. Just ask

Cheers!

Ajit,
Thank you Ajit!
Your comments/posts are all encouraging. I've just started preparing for IBM certification(more important, learning XML). Sure will be back and JavaRanch is indeed the right place to be!

Thanks,
Hema

Can you post the study materials for IBM certification again? I just joined this discussion group and could not find such information. I am intersted in the IBM certification for eBusiness solution designer. Any recommendation/suggestion is appreciated!

June:
some of the older posts of interest are:
http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum31/HTML/000268.html http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum31/HTML/000367.html http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum31/HTML/000510.html
Also in general, if you are reading the XML Specs,
read the 6.0 Notation section first. I am going
thru this and din't quite understand why the notation
is the sixth section. I would have expected it to be
section 0 or 1. My $ 0.02
regds.

Ajith,
I first heard about XML-Cert group from you!
Anyway, with helpful people like you, I wouldn't want to leave JavaRanch too. But its okay to be part of that too!
Well, the next thing in my agenda, Promote JavaRanch XML Certification Forum at Yahoo groups(Not that it is needed, but anyway!)
Later,
Hema

Hi,
Start with trying out the preassessment test(You might get to take the actual exam for free! ), details available at http://www-1.ibm.com/certify/news/20011130.shtml
Look out for the Links and Mock Exams page at JavaRanch.
HTH,
Hema
