Hi,
I live in the UK and have been trying to get hold of a copy of IBM recommended text: Professional XML 2nd Edition (ISBN 1861005059).
Questions:
1) Is this book still in print? It doesn't seem to be available from any of the usual online bookshops.
2) Is there a 3rd edition?
3) Can anyone who has sat the test recommend an alternative book that is suitable for the exam.

Thanks!
Andy.

Wrox publication ended their business, so the book is out of print now. You could get a 2nd hand copy perhaps, OR use Inside XML by Steve Holzner. I am using the Inside XML book.

Thanks for your suggestion.
Does anyone else (especially those who have already taken the exam) have any further suggestions?
I have now also found out that the Wrox XML Schemas book is similarly hard to obtain. Any alternatives to this book are appreciated too!
Thanks again,
Andy

You can get used copies from Amazon for about $10. Even if new copies were still available, the used copies would still be a good choice.

The XMLSchemas book is quite important for the exam, so I suggest trying hard to get that. Like stated before, Amazon.com, half.com have plenty of copies

If you don't aspire for 100% in th certi the documents of Costello (http://www.xfront.com/) and the 0-chapter of the xml-schema specs should be more than enough. I found both excelent material to understand the concept of xml-schemas.
