hi there
i have cleared XML paper with 74 percent after reading only 3 weeks , b4 20 days i didn't know any thing abt xml , now i m certified .
books i concerned were Charles GoldFarb(best from exam pt of view) , Wrox Beginning XML ,XML By example(fine book) and Bible(worst book from exam pt of view)
whiz lab s/w is useless as IBM guys didn' ask any syntax question, paper was 90 percent scenario based that's why i cleared that , they test yr analytical skills not xml syntax
sso don't need to spend money on xml whiz . sample paper is much easier than real one , timing is problem , 74 q in 90 min ,didn't have enuff time to review all so first thought should be corect one. paper fees is 75 USD.

Ali-
Congratulations. Good job. Could you please tell me the most important chapters to read in The XML handbook by Charles Goldfarb. I have been reading XML bible and it's quite bulky.

Nirmal,
I believe the book's name that Ali is referring to is 'The XML Handbook' (by Charles F. Goldfarb and Paul Prescod. I have the second edition...there may be a third edition out now, you may want to check that out.
