I passed the SOA exam S90.01 from Arcitura 2 days ago with 96%.
The exam covers the fundamental concepts and terminology about SOA in general. The exam was 60min long with 50q and the passing score with 80%.
The exam consists of standard MC, T/F, multi-answer questions. I do found the T/F or those questions asking whether the statement(s) are T/F can be challenging because of the possible wording among the answer choices or simply reading the statement do make sense (look T when it's not). Otherwise, they are straightforward.
I was able to go through the exam 2 times (2nd time reviewing). Oh I did find this exam software differs from the Java ones when Oracle allows users to eliminate by right-clicking the options, the Arcitura one can't.
I used the following resources:
* SOA Principles of Service Design by Thomas Erl (chapters 3,4, appendix B are the key chapters to read for this exam; chapters 5,14-16 are optional to round out those principles without getting into the details)
* Youtube Architura channel: SOA and cloud computing connection points, understanding intrinsic interoperability and 4 pillars of service orientation are worth listening/watching. Despite the long (somewhat boring) talk, do read the slides provided.
