Hi All, I passed the IBM XML exam with 92% yesterday (got 51 out of 55 questions right). Thanks to Javaranch site, particularly the links and mock tests pages. I read Prof XML, prof XML schemas and XSLT (all the recommended books of IBM) and also read Skonnard (which is very good). I also read some articles from developerworks and xml.com. Thanks javaranch oncegain. bye for now. Raj SCJP, SCWCD, OOAD with UML, ITProject+, IBM XML & related technologies.
"r raj", First - Congrats! Second, would you please think about changing your display name? JavaRanch policy asks that you use a first name and a last name. [ February 10, 2003: Message edited by: John Wetherbie ]
The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen all at once.

Hi Archana, It took me 2 months of devoted study (including a week holiday). And that is something I don't want to do again for some time! I had no know knowledge of XML when I started. I read Prof XML first (left many chapters out) and then read Prof XML Schemas (first 9 chapters) and XLST(first 8 chapters). All this took about 5 weeks. Then I revised them again and in the last week had a look at Skonnard along with various articles. Raj SCJP, SCWCD, IBM XML, IBM OOAD with UML, IT Project+
