Hello Ranchers,

Had just come back from prometric, and passed the IBM Websphere Portal 399 exam with 68%, not so good at all
Like always, Javaranch was of great help

Here is the material that i used for preparation and the suggested order:
1. Java Portlet Specification

2. RAD V6 - Portlet Application Development and Portal Tools - sg246681
Chapters: 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 11, 13, 19, 20, 21, 26, 30, 31, 32 and 33

3. Portal Application Design and Development Guidelines - redp3829

4. A lot of articles from IBM developerworks

5. IBM infocenter:
Portal 5.1:
Development Guide
Troubleshooting section
RAD 6.0
Developing portal and portlet applications
Detecting and analyzing runtime problems

The main areas of the exam was:
JSR 168 Spec and API
Workplace Solutions Catalog
Cooperative Portlets
Credential Vault and Portlet Services
Profiling and debug (Remote and Local)

That's it, fell free to ask any questions.
