I passed ibm 285(80%) and 286(68%) yesterday afternoon. So tired I was.I think I am crazy to do 2 exams in one afternoon. Luckily, I pass all. Thx everyone who give much useful experience in the forum.

I study 285 in two weeks like other people.
For the test 285:
1. A book "An Introduction to Web Application Development with IBM WebSphere Studio: IBM Certified Associate Developer"
2. http://java.boot.by/icad-guide/
3. Dirk Nolte's topic, "an ICE test", but i can't find the link again.(Thanks Dirk Nolte)

I study 286 also in two weeks
For the test 286:

Hi Dan,

I have one query reg the IBM CERTIFICATION 285/286/287.

Are these certification not in increasing order ,, i mean like 286 covering more on webspher than 285 and same between 287 and 286.

What is the difference.

I am currently working for SCWCD certification and then would be giving any of 285/286 or 287.

Please give your experts comment.
Thanks.

IBM calls 285 entry level, 286 mid-level and 287-advanced level. But 287 is kind of superset of 286 and so on. 285 tests ability to use ide, 286 expands further and 287 includes EJB but excludes web services, 288 focuses on web services. They need not be given in any order. All these (except 288 ?) would be replaced with Rational versions soon for websphere 6.

IBM is currently replacing IBM 285 by IBM 255. The target release date for IBM 256 is Nov 2005 and IBM 257 is Mar 2006.


Also please explain if i do SCWCD, which of the two 285 or 286 would be best?

None of them. Actually, IBM 287 focus on J2EE technologies while IBM 286 focus more on Core Java.

I think exams 256 and 257 are already available.

Oh, my mistake.

Mixing up with the exams and the titles.

What I actually mean is ICSD and ICED for RAD 6.0 will be released on Nov 2005 and Mar 2006, according to IBM's website, replacing ICSD and ICED for WSAD 5.0.

Sorry for that.
