I've heard good things about this book. Is this a good book to use to study for the IBM XML certification?

Yeah, the reviews are very good. But I would still suggest Essential XML by Skonnard as THE book for Certification. It is small, to the point and with examples. Of course there may be areas where it may be short on explanation. Do refer to Professional XML 2/e for those areas.
Moreover for price sensitive and remotely located candidates Skonnard's book is quite attractive as it is a free download.
Best wishes

You have to register and then they allow download of the book. Go to www.develop.com. There have been a number of people who had problems downloading. If you run into problems AND if you have a large mail box, let me know; I would be delighted to email it to you..
Good Luck and with best wishes
