Hi,

i am newbie in the XML world.i have some experience with Jsp/Servlets.i am planning to write IBM XML 141 exam by the month of October.I thought of buying Beginning XML(Wrox) and start prepartion from this week.But my friend adviced me to start with Professional Java XML Book(wrox).Later when i discussed with my project lead,he suggested me Proffesional XML(wrox).i am little bit confused now.i am eager to start prepartion soon.i started learning the basics of XML from www.w3schools.com.Which would be the best book for me to start ? [Beginning XML,Professional Java XML,Professional XML]all are from Wrox Press.i am sure that i would get a solution from JavaRanch.

Hi Jibin,

I would recommend you to use "professional XML" second edition. It is the prescribed book for the Exam by IBM and covers almost all the technologies required by the exams. It is also suited for beginners. [So I guess you do not need begining XML]

I think you are on the right path www.w3schools.com is the best place to start learning these technologies.

And instead of getting "Professional Java XML Book", I would strongly suggest you to get "Processing XML with Java " instead. It is a wonderful book and covers DOM and SAX so well that you might not need any other book for these topics.

And more there is a free online copy

Good luck for the exam


HTH

Hi Hari,

Thanx for your reply.After reading your reply i am more confident in learning XML.I would buy Professional XML once i completes XML tut's from "w3schools".I just went through "Processing XML with Java" that you have suggested.Special Thanks for your advice.
