Dear All,
I would like to appear in the paper soon, and would like to satisfy a few queries which i didn't read on the list.
1. Can you go back and check answers like you can in other certifications.
2. Do you get a certification or sth. or like UML you just have that pass/fail paper.
3. Would you be given a breakdown of your score by topic
4. What is it good for. I've read on XML, still can't understand whether it's good for anything or not.
5. Do you get questions like Best answer, worst answer, bad answer, etc. or like UML, only choose the BEST answer, alone.
6. What scope is there in this technology.
7. What to watch out for in the exam. What are the things i should look at in the paper. Tricks, etc.
Thanks In Advance.
Umair

1. Can you go back and check answers like you can in other certifications.
Yes you can change answers at the end if you wish
2. Do you get a certification or sth. or like UML you just have that pass/fail paper.
I am not quite sure, I understand your question. Yes you will get a certificate once you complete the exam successfully. I got mine last week. The certificate just mentions that you have completed all the requirements and does not mention the percentage.
3. Would you be given a breakdown of your score by topic
Yes
4. What is it good for. I've read on XML, still can't understand whether it's good for anything or not.
I would recommend that you read a bit more before taking the exam.
5. Do you get questions like Best answer, worst answer, bad answer, etc. or like UML, only choose the BEST answer, alone.
Yes, You will get questions, which ask you to answer the MOST likely, LEAST likely scenario etc
6. What scope is there in this technology.
Too many to list here
7. What to watch out for in the exam. What are the things i should look at in the paper. Tricks, etc.
Keep an eye on the time. You might not have as much as you would like. Also watch out for the wording of the questions. You will find questions, which have double negations. There is no need to read all the exhibits. They are repeated throught the exam.
Good luck with your exam !!!

All good answers! I agree... Here are some other thoughts...
2. I don't know if you get a cert document. I was disappointed by the UML cert. But the UML was one of two required for IBM JCert Level 2, so I don't think that applies here.
4. If you haven't seen the light, if you don't get it, if you don't know what it is good for, then DO NOT take this test. It is a HUGE, VAST, DRY expansive topic, not unlike the Sahara Desert (except that XML is cool, and... OK I'll stop) Only the truely motivated should start out on this journey!
Once you "get it", you'll want to use XML everywhere! For example, I'm using it to pass search results up from the data layer, so that the middle tier doesn't have to touch it and the JSP side doesn't have to know beans about beans.
6. What scope is there in this technology.
See above answer!!!
7. In addition to the above, it really helps to diagram some of the questions. It can be strangely very difficult to visualize tree views, import order precedence, etc.
