Dear All ,
Good greetings to everyone in that amazing J2EE/Java community.
I've just finished from a future plan setup for tackling IBM SOA Architect Certification which require me to clear two exams :
Test 664: SOA Fundamentals
Test 667: Architectural Design of SOA Solutions
For the first one (664),I have the following resources around me :
Service Oriented Architecture Compass (IBM Press) Book
Understanding SOA book
and the list of recommended readings & documents mentioned at the end of this website :
this is for the first exam ,
However for the second one i don't have that clear road map on which books and resources i have to get before i start the preparation .
I wonder if you guys can help me to advice whether am i on the right training track for the first exam , or you have any further recommendation .
and what are the trusted resources i need to get for the second exam (667)
thanks allot
with regards .

I called IBM and they said one would need to sign in to get access to the class. I don't think terms allows one to send the pdf over. I have asked them to generate the customer number for me and as soon as I receive my customer number I can can go ahead and register it.
I agree. Here's the link:
