I studied for 3 weeks on average of about 1 hour a day, or maybe less.

Materials used: I read half the book (ISBN-10: 0131870025) on an overseas flight, and then read the rest over the last few days. I used only VW003 PDF materials (have to be an IBM partner to get) as well. Aditionally, I took 3 online practice tests via IBM's online software. These tests were very representative of the real exam.



The questions were worded so strangely, I almost think a non-native English speaker wrote them. This was the least I ever studied for a certification. I would think any employer that has ever taken this would not think too highly of it, as it was very easy. However, I suppose since it is a 'fundamentals' test, it may be accurate of that.

Good luck to everyone else!!

Anyone know how long it takes to get a cert from IBM? This is my first from this vendor. Do I get my IBM ID on the cert???
