Hi guys ,
After studying just three days (well I know How I managed this) I finally passed the cert with 72% which is not very good percentage but still happy and contented with it.
Thanks to ranchers who helped me by telling of a very good book that is XML Quick Refrence I got it printed but I am fond of reading e-Books Online so gone through half of its soft copy
I didn't used any thing for XSLT and Relied on previous Experince.
Soon there will be a long post from me about resources I have tons of it for Preparation. I will hang around this forum to help the guys if I could
Well whats next
I let you guys guess

Thanks for the long reference list! I'm a slow reader. However, I'll try my best to go through them at least on a glance level.

Congrat Syed. Thanks for the list of resources.
Someone mentioned that you are the youngest in the world to get this certification. Mind if I ask how young you are?
