The w3docs are more than enough to prpare for the exam
But they are very long and tedious and might take alot of time ..and reading them might make someone like me go

If you are able to read teh entire docs its godo for you

My personal suggestion would be to prepare using books
thats what I did

Good luck for the exam

I agree with Hari.
W3 specs are the best if u can digest and decipher all the long length statments.
Actually to understand XML correct syntax usage I did refer to W3 Specs but got stuck.
Picked a great book .. XML Specification guide. But yes I reveerted to books.
I went thru Specs for XSL ,XPointer ,XLinks to know the correct definitions and thier appropriate usage.
And definitely not recommend Specs for learning XSL XSL-FO XPointer XLinks DOM/SAX etc but u should go through them for definitions of these Specification from a Specification wording XSL XSL-FO XPointer XLinks.

The Specs will confuse u further .This exam as it is is pretty comprehensive in the XML techs u need to know. Get hold of good boooks. Read through books and to get more info look up Spec.

Thats the way I did depends how good u digest the Specs.

Best of luck for your exam and preparations.
