Hi All,
I don't have too much of exp in xml and would be giving xml certification in a month time.
As suggested by many friends, i am studying through XML Bible and XML@Whiz Tutorial and Test Engine from www.whizlabs.com/jwhiz. My knowledge of xml has improved a lot but still i am not highly confident. Can anyone tell me how good is xml bible and xml@whiz. are these enough for learning xml and for ibm certification.
It would be great if you could tell me the list of mock exams for xml certification available on net as i couldn't find much.
Thanks a ton in advance.

None of my business, but still I suggest you not to hurry into getting certified. Without strong fundamentals, your certification is just a piece of paper.
Spend some time learning the technology and get your feet wet( I'd say knee wet ). Let me caution you, there are quite a lot of important concepts that are not covered in the certification. Things such as Namespaces( what is covered by the test is just a pittance ), DOM II Event Models, XML integration with Java, JAXP etc. are either not a part of the objectives, or their coverage is grossly inadequate for a real-life job requirements.
Just my opinion...
