After two months of preparation (1 to 2 hrs daily) i took the exam today. I have no hands-on experience in web service.
I feel RMH's book is BEST book for novice to easily understand all the major concepts related to java web services . (As the book title says, it is the ultimate guide for J2EE web services )
For exam, i did the following,
1.Read RMH twice. 2.Then Java blueprints ( chap 3, 5 and 8) once. 3.Read Basic profile once. ( 1 day prior to exam). 4.MZ's & Watsh Rajneesh's study guide for review (2 days prior to exam). 5.I used to mock exams often from xyzws.com to know my understanding and readiness for the exam.
MZ's and Watsh rajneesh study guides helped a lot during review.
I felt only few questions were tricky.
Thanks a lot for all your valuable tips and suggestions.
