XSLT and XPath.
However, I think a bigger problem for me in terms of preparation is that all three books that IBM recommends are not really the greatest examples of book writing, and so, I am forced to take an alternate approach to understanding the technology in depth.
I just finished reading a book called "Strategic XML" over the weekend, and I would recommend it anyone wanting to understand XML before proceeding to read the "Big" books.
What do the others think?
