Hi Nick...

I want to know what is the easiest way (i.e. less exams) to achieve an IBM Certification title. I know the ICED path is long.

I don't care abou the technology involved, I know XML, UML, Java, and I can learn DB2, Websphere, etc.

Thanks in advance.

You can get IBM 255 (RAD), IBM 256 (RAD) or IBM 141 (XML), or various certificates from DB2 or MQSeries.

Most of them can get the certificate with 1 exam only.

What I've heard, the WAS MQ tests are quite hard, aren't they?
Also Websphere MQ is a product which only few people have installed.
I doubt if employers care much about if you have a certificate or a sheet for having past the test, you get for any certification.
For me UML test is most interesting, but as its part of ICED you get no extra IBM Certified PDF, but only the sheet from Prometic that you've past the test.
Or go for 255, though I think that it must be quite a boring test. Only problem is that you need a lot of memory in your box. With 1 Gig WSAD 6 is not the greatest fun.
