I have finally started preparing for the scdjws exam. After doing a startup research, I came across excellent material from - Mikalai Zaikin, Ivan A Krizsan.

However I am just wondering should I first spend time reading a book, lets say RMH's and then jump to the guides from Mikalai, Ivan ? (Touch afraid that I might get exhausted after reading the complete book)

Note: I have pretty good knowledge of Web Service standards like SOAP, WSDL, UDDI And also XML, Xml Schemas. I developed services using TIBCO's product so I have got a chance to play with them but I have never developed one using Java .. .

Guys please suggest.

Hi!
My study guide is written so that it starts with the basics and gradually introduce topics, along with the exam topics.
If you are already familiar with the topics, a suggestion is that you can read the study guide and, if needed, refer to other material, such as the RMH book.
I can recommend the parts of the RMH book on UDDI (the whole book is very well written, although slightly theoretical).
Best wishes!

Hi Ivan,
You have done a great favour by guiding me and I really appreciate your help. I actually intend to study for the exam in an aggressive manner as I have to meet few targets by July/Aug this year. Hence I am thinking of taking up the exam in either of these months. And I believe your study guide will be the appropriate way for me to reach the target.

I agree RMH is an excellent resource to refer but again one needs time and patience to go through it completely.
Anyway, thanks again for help
