I knew that there are a lot of questions about XML Schema in the exam, so I bought the O'Reilly XML Schema Book by Eric van der Vlist, I found that it's not easy, is the schema that difficult?, I mean that by looking at the Schema chapter at XML Bible by Elliotte Rusty Harold, I found it too much easier.
Please anybody had the chance to read both books tell me about what I really need for the exam, and is it Ok to continue with the O'Rielly book, or it's a waste of time, the XML Bible chapter is enough?

Hi tamer,
it is always better to know in depth about schemas . So it is always a good investment.
AI have not read o'reily's book ..but i have gone through XML Bible, XMl professional edition and essential xml quick reference. i also studied teh schema tutorials at w3schools.org.
Out of all these, I found w3schools.org to be very useful, as it was very clear and precise.
As far as the exam is concerned, I feel w3schools.org is more than enough. BUT to be on the safer side and for more knowledge , a book on schema is always helpful
i would suggest you to go through w3schools.org first and then go through the xml schema book !!1
schemas are an important part of XML as well as the exam
good luck for teh exam
when are u taking the exam ?
hope this helps
