Hi , This is subash. Any update on this test. Is there a forum folder for this BEA SOA certification. I could not find any other information other than BEA certification website on this. Any pointers will help.

I'd be keen to find out more, is there any good books or CBT ? Any cost effective ways to study for the exam ? I expect the BEA courses are rather pricey ?

I too initially was planning to take-up this BEA SOA Architect Exam. Since i could not find any study guide, which will give a consolidated materials, i even approached a vendor. That guy sold a sample test in the name of study guide. The courses of BEA were also very costly. So, i kept postponing it for sometime. Incidentally, i found one IBM based SOA test (665). With the help of freely available IBM course materials, redbooks and articles, i easily passed it.
