I passed the IBM XML certification today.Got 66%.
I have been working with Xml and related technologies for more than six months.
I think it is very difficult to pass the exam if you don't have any experience working with xml.This exam is not like Programmer Certification for Java where you need the detailed understanding of every concept.It just requires an overall understanding of the concepts.
I didn't read XML Bible, I used the following books.
Beginning XML.
XML how to Program.
XML in a Nutshell.

Thanks Tanya and Louis . I prepared off and on for about three months .Sometimes 2, 3 hours everyday for two weeks and then no study for one week, something like that.
