DOM2 consists of 14 eparate modules. Two of them, "Core" and "XML" correspond to the original DOM1.
Of the remaining 12 modules in DOM2, only a few are actually implemented by the major parser venders: the "traversal" module is usually implemented by parser venders, the "events" module is sometimes implemented, on the "range" module is a little less occasionally implmented.
You can probably see my question coming: of the 14 DOM2 modules, which of them do I need to know for the exam, and conversely which modules can I ignore?
My source for making up this question is pages 435 through 437 of Rusty Harold's "Processing XML with Java.

It is sufficient to do SAX and DOM chapters from Elliot book chapter 6-12 .
And DOM Examples on your own.
Thats more then enough.
I didnt have any DOM experience at all and this is all I did.

Thanks for the tip, which I would characterize as a heuristic rather than a specific answer. I.e., you basically said to read chapters 6-12 and everything will be fine. I understand that, but I would still be curious to know, since others have posted that one must know "every single DOM API interface", whether or not the pool of DOM questions has any in it that may pop up concerning the more obscure and hardly ever implemented DOM Api modules or if it sticks to the basic CORE DOM api's.

You need to know only the core DOM API ..you dont have to really know the other API - like EVENTS, VIEWS Specifications of DOM 2.0 in detail

But people have reported getting questions from API other than the core DOM API's . SO it is always better to go through them if not necessarily memorize them !!!

And as i have mentioned in my previous postes, it is more important to know the differences between SAX and DOM (in terms of implementation, usage, etc)

Good luck for the exam

Hope this helps
