How does IBM-141 compare to SCJP2, in difficulty?

I just passed the SCJP2 a few weeks ago, and am tossing around the idea of doing some XML training. I will be sure to read these forums for tips, as they were invaluable for SCJP2 preparation.
My question here is, how difficult is this test? I have about a month's worth of free time to prepare...is that doable?
Thanks for any tips.

In my opinion, the IBM test is much tougher. There are very few gimme questions on the exam, and you are under great time pressure because you have to read all of the questions very carefully. (The questions often include some very lengthy passages of source code.) It's as if you are being tested in excruciating detail about five or six different programming languages instead of one.
I've taken 15 different certification exams, and test 141 is by far the most difficult.
