Hi frends,
I am a student of MCA (III year). I am interested in IBM exam-255 (Websphere V6.0).
Can anybody tell me, how long it can take? As I have no experience of working with WEBSPHERE.

I have ICSD(286), it is for WebSphere 5, but I suppose the basic concecpt of the exam will be the same. The exam is about to know the product. So questions like: If you want do this, you have to click this or this? You will also need basic knowledge about websphere application server, and of course about J2EE (Servlets, JSP etc.).
I don't like these kind of questions. I took this exam after a 1 year of experience with WebSphere.

Basicly, it might take pretty long time if you haven't yet worked with any kind of IBM WebSphere products.
I found most IBM Websphere exams related to WSAD very specific - a lot of questions actually assume that you had worked with certain IDE wizards to create classes, entities, objects, etc.
IBM also provide its own view on j2ee patterns, and sometimes it really confuse about IBM own patterns used to create for example web projects.
You can read the books quickly, but w/o actual hands-on experience it will be very hard to get high score.
