Passed XML Certification

passed IBM XML Certification this morning.
Now I'm qualified for the following titles:
Sun Certified Programmer for the Java�2 Platform.
IBM Certified Developer - XML and Related Technologies, V1.
I got only 64%. I could not prepare to my satisfaction because I will graduate this Aug, I hope these two certifications and a master degree in computer engineering will help me to land a entry-level job.

Time is very critical for me to answer all 74 questions.
I suggest the follwing readings:
For "XML and DTD", I think XML Bible is good enough.
For XSLT, I use �XSLT. Working with XML and HTML".
For DOM and SAX, I use "Beginning XML".
Tutorials from http://www.zvon.org/ help me a lot to understand
some concepts.
I did very bad in XML Rendering only 25%.
But 88% on design.
I thank all the previous test takers who gave valuable suggestions that helped me to get this certification.
Thank you and Good Luck to all of you.

First of all - congratulations. You'll be able to get yourself a job. Just don't panic and be patient. With your degrees and certifications you'll get it.
Can you tell us, how long your preparation studies for XML exam was? Did you have any XML experience before studying for the exam?
Thanks,

TO Alex Ayzin:
I didn't have any XML experience before studying for the exam.
I studied around 2-3 hours every day for about two months.
Before planning to take the exam, I found almost all of the previous test takers are experienced programmer. So I spend
a lot time reading articles from different websites.
But I don't think this help me much.
To Michael.H.Sun:
If you keep searching or visiting this forum, you will find
a lot of useful information. http://www.javaranch.com/gramps/XMLLinks.jsp
I used this link a lot.
