I passed the test with 70%(li'l disappointing though
), didn't do well in architecture and processing sections. I should have read some case studies and put some effort in reading the whole DOM API.
I thank the javaranchers and the guys maintaining this site, for the valuable information they provided. It helped a lot in my prep. I also thank whizlabs for providing the xml@whiz sample test engine.
Here's how i prepared:
i'd say Professional XML 2nd edition is a must for the prep.i read chaps 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 11.
- to get some idea about XML i started with w3school tutorials and IBM tutorials on XML and XML validation.
-XML schemas: Roger's tutorial(@www.xfront.com), xml.com
-DTDs: prof XML 2nd edition, all the three entity links/resources provided by Mapraputa Is.
-Xlinks and XPointers: XML Bible, Prof XML, xml.com
-XPath: zvon.org, Prof XML
-XSLT: Roger's tutorial(@xfront.com), Norman Walsh's tutorial(@http://www.nwalsh.com/docs/tutorials/xsl/xsl/slides.html), zvon.org,http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/xslfaq.html
-Web services: www.xml.com
-DOM Professional XML
-other: IBM developerworks articles, tutorials....and referred the specs once in a while.
-took all whiz's and IBM's sample tests.
Good luck to all test takers.
