Hello fellow ranchers, I passed the Arcitura SOA exams 2 (technology) & 3 (SOA architecture) exams today scoring 90% and 92% respectively.

The exams are not that difficult yet sometimes the wording can make you fuzzy in choosing the correct answer (especially those true/false questions).

Exam 2 is 60min, 50q, 78% pass
Exam 3 is 60min, 50q, 80% pass

The resources I used

For exam 2 (technology)
whatisrest.com website = for REST web services
SOA concepts, technology & design book by Thomas Erl = read through it once, personally not much to gain for me personally since it talked about basic web services (XML, SOAP, WS-I, UDDI, WS-*)
made list of those WS-* specs

For exam 3 (architecture)
Principles of Service Design book by Thomas Erl = going through part 2 of the book, know what each principle is
the principles poster mentioned at soaschool.com for module 3
know those coupling mechanisms
terminologies used for those principles
the service composability principle covers the other principles (like a wrapper) with all those "composition xxx" terms ... know these

Apart from those whatever you learned from SOA exam 1 (fundamentals) also apply, these 2 exams build on those especially exam 3.

Now onto the next SOA exams, need to learn those SOA design patterns

Thanks Piet for the cow. These exams are about service-oriented architecture.
