Hi, I would like to take this certification as early as possible. I would not like to buy many books and read all of them. I would like to know the concepts from scratch. Is there only one book for this certification? If so, which book. Thanks in advance for any suggestion.
Exam objectives mention the following technologies: DTD XML Schema 1.0 Namespaces DOM2 SAX2 XSLT 1.0 XPath 1.0 SOAP, WSDL, UDDI, XML encryption and XML signature So you need a book that covers most of them. All but the last one are covered in such books as "XML Bible" and Wrox's "Professional XML" or "Beginning XML". These three books were mentioned in this forum most often by those who prepared for the previous version of the exam. You can choose any and then read about SOAP, WSDL... on the Internet. I am not aware of any book that covers all mentioned technologies, but if somebody does, he/she should tell us!
