Hi

After 5 days of strenous hard work I was able to pass the exam. The books I have used for the exam are:

1. Professional XML
2. Essential XML Quick Refernence by Aaron Skonnard

Both of the books are excellent and I have chosen both for my preparation. For example the Professional XML provides code which I can test while the XML quick reference provides a concise way of understanding and presenting concepts and method names. I have had very little time to go through specs, but let me tell you that reading specs would take time..but they are the right resource to understand concepts and examples to strengthen such.
Coming to the questions, lot of them were scenario based and I used Process of Elimination to come to final answers. Questions involving code were less, for example, xslt etc.. but as some one said earlier, some of the questions(1-2)appeared from mock exam. I have to think a lot in the exam while answering some questions, because lot of them were tricky and using the basic concept and analyzing such to a scenario would help. If you see the spec, they provide concept + an example. for future aspirants please use those, lot of the scenarios were built upon those.

Anyhow it was very challenging and I am happy that I made through
