141 Test objectives specifies DOM API to manipulate XML data. Can someone help me here, what all we need to cover on DOM specifications?
Do we need to cover all CORE, EVENTS, VIEWS, STYLES, TRAVERSAL & RANGES specification? OR just CORE is sufficient for the test.

If you check the objectives of the IBM XML exam - section 3, it states like this : "Use the DOM2 API to manipulate XML data".
This means you need to go through all the topics in DOM2. The CORE only covers the basis on which EVENTS, VIEWS, STYLES, TRAVERSAL & RANGES are built. Hence it is better you understand all the concepts which will enable you parse XML files and display in required formats.
My sincere advice is not to specifically go through each of the specs. Instead get a book, get a broader understanding of what each does and how to use them. Work out some simple examples. This should suffice and make you ready for the exam.
But if you have enough time and want to dig deeper, then is the best place. It gives you the pdf version of spec also.
I think this information answers your question. Get back if you need any other info.
Good luck,
