Hi folks!
Could you tell me which level of DOM should I study for the exam? Do I have to learn both 1 and 2?
Thanks!

In the book Professional XML 2nd Edition, Chapter 11, there is a section related to DOM Level 1 (begins at page 467 and goes through 502). Isn't important that I read it? DOM Level 2 only is treated from page 502 on.
I downloaded the DOM Level 2 Core Specification (version 1) from w3.org.
Which is the best reference to study DOM? The book or the specification itself?

If you look at the exam objectives it says DOM2. DOM 2 adds some functionalitites to DOM1. So you need to know all the interfaces of DOM1 + newly added features in DOM2. Hope this helps.

Try reading the specs. Personally I don't like the way it is covered in Professional XML book and u could expect more in the exam than that is covered in the book.
Thanks,-PC RE

I agree, the specs really spell out the differences, and the DOM spec is not that hard to read. I think it is important to know the major differences, and know what adapters there are to go from one to the other.
