Just for interest: Did you have any special preparation besides books, BEA documentation. I wonder if for SOA/AquaLogic there is any special prep software / books out like it is for SCJD, SCEA, SCBCD, SCJP?
BTW: I am quite into the field of BEA WLS and JMS

I took BEA courses and used those materials for the cert. THis was easy for me as I work for BEA here in Brazil.
I believe its not easy to take this cert without taking the courses as its focused in BEA not general SOA understanding.
For WLS, I'd recommend you taking the WLS Certified Developer. Its an general cert about JEE and WLS. Im gonna take WLI Developer and then WLS Cert Developer. Maybe we can prepare together.
If you are interested, please, send me an email daniel.amadei [at] gmail dot com
