HI guys, I just passed the exam 288 " Web Services" from IBM last Saturday. I would like to share my experience for those who are thinking to take it: 1- Read the J2EE Web services book (author: Richard Monson-Haefel). 2- Run the examples in the IBM book more than once if you can. Big part of the exam is covered in those examples. http://publib-b.boulder.ibm.com/Redbooks.nsf/RedbookAbstracts/sg246891.html?Open http://www-1.ibm.com/certify/tests/edu288.shtml 3- Take Ice exam many times before even you start reading the books or run the examples. It will give you a clear idea about things you should pay more attention to. 4- Read other articles about UDDI, SOAP, WSDL, JSR 109, JAX-RPC. Here are some useful articles: www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2002/08/07/j2eewebsvs.html www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/webservices/library/ws-wsdl/ Good luck Abdennour Laaroubi IBM Certified Web Services Developer IBM Certified XML Developer IBM Certified Enterprise Developer Sun Certified Enterprise Architect Sun Ceritified Business Component Developer Sun Certified Web Component Developer Sun Certified Java Programmer

Thank you ever so much, Mikalai! ))) Certainly I know about sample test. Abdennour suggested to pass ICE test MANY times that's why I decided that there might be another free source of sample tests....)))
