What a relief !!!
Here is the break-up.
Architecture 100%
Information Modeling 73%
XML Processing 83%
XML Rendering 66%
Testing and Tuning 33%
As expected, scored less in the testing and tuning section.
Actually I didnt really know what to expect in that section
Did not study much about the XSL-FO , CSS, hence scored less in the rederening section as well.
The exam was tough, too many scenario based (case study) questions.
But some questions Basic XML syntax, DOM, SAX, XPATH etc are really sitters.
Thanks to Java-ranchers for all the informative posts.
Special thanks to Hari Vignesh Padmanabhan and Daisy Brown for providing the resources and mock tests.
Will start preparing for the IBM-486 from next week.
Hope it will be easier than this one.

The questions based on scenario needs you to have a very good understanding of all teh XMl technologies (XSLT, DOM, SAX, etc..)
Unfortunately tehre are not many mock exams available for these types of questions. If u have a lot of experience with XMl and teh related technologies, you would have a fair idea of solving these problems.
The only exam simulator that I know, which offers a lot of these type of questions is whizlabs!!!
One of teh mock exam in Jvaranch also covers this part. Go through this..it will give you a fair idea of what to expect in teh exam !!!
