Thanks hema/tanya
Well.. to guide you, i didn't go out of league.. i followed simple advice given by other guys before.. I refered "XML in nutshell" by O'Reilly.. but this book is NOT tailored at all for this certification though it's good book to read. It's xml reference cram helped me.
I got some printouts of xml bible book, XSLT & Schema chapters.
If u r going to buy any book, buy xml bible.
I bought xml@whiz software for this certification. It's good piece to try, atleast it will tell you where u stand time to time.
Regarding test, it was not that much similiar like mock tests available on net or xml@whiz. What i found most of questions were related to some scenario conditions. Like they were not much related to syntax typo or tell the output of this XSLT.
Like unless you have done some real software design work otherwise you will be facing problem here..
As advice, If i hav to give test again, i will try to read exact xml syntax, try to analysis the questions related to xml design.
You guys can go thro archive this forum to find lot of good links.
Best of Luck...
Thanks
Ashish Jain
