I passed IBM 255 today.

The exam was a bit harder than I thought it would be with a lot of questions around deployment descriptors etc.

Thanks to all those on here who helped me!

Congratz !!!

Just a bit curious, what deployment descriptors are tested ? web.xml and ejb-jar.xml, or some WebSphere-specific ones ?

Thanks !

I found the 255 mock test harder than the real test.

This was the opposite of 256 where I found the mock test much easier than the real test.

Mikalai - I think the deployment descriptor questions were on web.xml.

Good luck!

HI Mikalai Zaikin,
Thank you very much for providing such a helpful Guide and Mock examination for preparation of IBM certification.
I think the link you provided is the only resource for IBM certification preparation net, as I serched alot and could not find any else.

I am at begining level of 'Websphere Studio ' and I am preparing for IBM Test 285.
But I don't see any mock exam for IBM 285 or 286 at :

unless I dont go for any mock exam it will be very difficult for me to gain the confidence. Can you please guide me in this regards.

Very eager to read from you....

Once again thank you verymuch in advance !!!


Ramesh.
