Look at this excellent 4 parts XML tutorial from IBM
https://www6.software.ibm.com/developerworks/education/x-cert1421/index.html
I think it's cover the major part of the required knowledge for the certification

I think 'XML in a Nutshell' is a really good book for preparation. It covers most of the objectives. You only need some additional material for XQuery and XForms. For this you can get some basic tutorials from http://www.w3schools.com/

I mentioned this before, but I totally recommend the quickstart guide. I had an old edition, of about 180 pages, and loved it. Now I see it's really bulked up in size. I'm I'm doing work with XML, I always keep it handy. It's just a great book with lots of easy code to read and work with:

XML for the World Wide Web (Visual QuickStart Guide) by Elizabeth Castro

As far as IBM goes, they recommend XML in a Nutshell by Elliotte Rusty Harold, W. Scott Means and The XSLT Cookbook.


For xslt, I picked up Beginning XSLT 2.0: From Novice to Professional, and really liked it, although, you've got to be careful of the version if you're interested in taking the exam.
