I guess he's talking about this book.
The Redbook is typically based on the deep details on WebSphere Studio, while Mr.Howard's book is concentrating on the exam objectives of the 287 cert....

Pradeep, it depends on the region... In India, it might not be worthful to take IBM's certs(I'm not sure)... In Thailand, I'm pretty sure that they don't care of IBM's certs and it's not that popular like Sun's ones...
But if we r sticking on IBM's tech like WebSphere Studio and App Server, then why won't we go and certify for that... That's only $10 per cert, if we can do the sample test..

It is not just IBM but even sun. No one cares abt certificates in India.
