Hi guys,
I passed this exam with 90%. First of all I would like to thank you all for sharing all your doubts and knowledge on this forum. This site has been a great help in preparation for this exam. Believe me, exam is not hard at all if your preparation include lots of practice to clear your concepts. Here is my score report.
Architecture80%
Information Modelling 86%
XML Processing94%
XML Rendering100%
Testing and Tuning100%
There were lots of scenario based question. They were not hard at all. Answers were really obviour for those question.
Lots of questions on XML Schema, XSLT/XPath, DOM and SAX.
some quesitons on XML and DTD.
2-3 questions on SOAP, WSDL & UDDI.
1 question each for XLink and XPointer. ( Just concepts no details )
No questions on XML Signature, XML Encryption or XML Query were asked.

My preparation :
I regularly visited this forum. I got lots of my doubts cleared just by looking at all posts and replies on this forum.
Professional XML ( 2nd edition ) for following topics.
XML and DTD ( chap 2 to 5 )
XLink
DOM & SAX( tried to write some code to have a good level of understanding )
SOAP, WSDL & UDDI ( Just understand it. You don't have to remeber all the details of it. W3CSchools.com has goo tutorials on these topics )
XSL-FO

For XML Schema, you can't find better resource than those Roger's ppts. You can find those at www.xfront.com. There are 2 ppts. Also don't forget to download BestPractices.zip. It contains some additional ppts with lots of good information on Schema. They will really help you consolidate your knowledge of schema. And DO all the labs that comes with the ppts.
For XSLT and XPath, I have used XSLT book of O'Reilly. It is really a good book. I also went through XSL and XPath tutorials downloaded from ZVON.org. I did lots of practice to understand these technologies. Those 50 tips on PerfectXML.com are also good.

I have read lots of article for different topics from XML.com, IBM and others. Once again PRACTICE A LOT to clear all your concepts and understand all technologies and their practical use.
Thanks,

Niraj

Thanks Jaydev,
Actually, your posts and replies have been a great help. Thanks for suggesting the Roger's ppts for XML Schema. It was really a good way of learning XML Schema. One really doesn't need anything else to understand XML Schema.

Thanks Syed,
I am very busy with my project at present. I am thinking about giving IBM's 486 exam, since I have a good object oriented programming background. I have been using C++ for quite some time now. We use Rational Rose here at work to design the classes using UML and generate the code. So IBM's 486 should be next for me whenever it is possible.
