Is Professional XML alone enough to pass the exam?

Hi:
I have a question for XML experts: if a person doesn't have experience with XML before, can he(she) pass 141 just by reading professional XML (2nd edition) from Wrox?
After going through the book, now I found myself score in the sample test consistently just below 70%, but that is not enough, according to some posts.
So I was thinking to read more. In the IBM's site, it lists 3 preparation books, besides professional XML, other two books seem to specilize on XML Scheme and Xslt. But it doesn't look like there are many questions on those two areas. So do you think it worths it to read the other two books?
Thanks a lot!
Don

Questions related to Schema and XSLT are well covered for the exam. But most of the questions on these topics can be answered if you're familiar with schema primer or zvon.org's xslt tutorial. Check out the links for resources on schema and xslt and that would be good enough. Don't think it is necessary to have the other two books if you're thorough with schema and xslt.

Sushmita,

The Second Edition of "Professional XML" is most preferred. The ISBN number for that book is ISBN 1861005059.
