Hi guys...I am back after long time.....just gave my exam and cleared it....was looking for it since last december but started preparing for it during last 20 days only....what I did..

1.I started with the 5 part series by ibm...read it once
2.Now I got the feel of the syllabus and started reading XML in nutshell....real only the required chapters
3.I attended the 2 days training organised by my company(IBM) also....it also helped me a lot
4.lastly I read the 5 part series again and gave the test....

had downloaded the demo version of whizlabs and few other demo versions also...did only those questions....

and guys i would say that 5 part series by IBM is the most important...i think all the questions came from those tutorials only...you cant even skip a single line in that tutorial...if you are through with those tutorials you would easily crack the exam....now my next targets are scja ,scbcd5 and the exam based on web services...

lol...nice word...killer....well i will be giving scja next week...have heard a lot about your book but will be giving this test without any preparation as i already have scjp and scwcd under my belt and performed well in your well compiled online simulator ....I will go through few online materials(regarding j2me,applets,swing and few more concepts).....I think that should be enough

Congrats Uday.
Can you please share with us the list of all the chapters that you had preapared from "XML in Nutshell"? Also, was there anything specific taught during the XML session conducted by your company IBM, apart from what is mentioned in the tutorial series and book?

Can you please provide links for mock exam which are free?

hi all...
the link for the ibm tutorials is:
http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/views/xml/libraryview.jsp?search_by=xml+related+technologies+certification+prep

you need to create the login first....

as far as the chapters are concerned i went through chapters 2,3,4,8,9,13,17,18,19,20 from Nutshell...mind you there is no chapter on xquery in Nutshell....i did this part from ibm tutorials only....they are more than enough...

as far as that training is concerned it wasnt certification oriented training.....most of the topics covered were not part of the syllabus of certification....but ya i got some hands on there....

and lastly again i would repeat dont skip even a single line from those tutorials....
