I cleared IBM 000-664 (IBM Certified SOA Associate) with 100%.

Being hands on exp, through in OOPs concepts and experiance as a Technical Architect, this exam i found a little tough but yes never expected a score of 100%

Those who are interested to get to know about SOA could start with following initial stuff-

1. SOA for dummies by Judith Hurwitz, Robin Bloor, Carol and Marcia Kaufman
2. SOA Using JAVA Web Services by Mark Hansen
3. Understanding Enterprise Soa (2007) by Eric Pilier and Hugh Taylor

I will welcome all your queries in this regard. Just drop me a mail... ganesh underscore gosavi AT yahoo DOT com.

Thanks !

I'm currently preparing for the SCJWSD exam.
I like to take the two SOA IBM exams afterwards.
What other material did you use and can you share your notes?

Once again, congratulations.

Hy Ganesh,

100 %: that's a great score.

I wonder if you have previous SOA hands-on experience before taking the exam.

Why you don't take IBM Certified SOA Solution Designer but choose to take
IBM Certified SOA Associate?
