I passed the exam today with a score of 68%. The exam was very confusing. I am happy I passed. As mentioned earlier, the exam waas heavy on Schema, DTD, XSL, XPATH and about 3-4 questions on XML signature and web services. Many thanks to my fellow ranchers for their invaluable contributins to this forum. Now moving to SCEA. All the best to those of you who are still preparing.
Louis.

Hai Fegun,
I'm taking sample tests using XML@Whiz test tool. I'm scoring only 30 to 32 in the exams I've taken where I need to score 38.
I feel the sample tests are tough and the questions given are too complicated with complex XPath expressions. Do you think the real exam will be so tough? I found that the sample test concentrates more on the syntaxes rather than on concepts. Pls let me know if the IBM exam will also be on similar lines.
Thanks,
Rakesh.

Rakesh-
XML@Whiz is very good in helping you to understand the concepts. However, the xpath /xsl questions are a lot different from what you will see in the IBM exam. The IBM exam is more concept oriented. There are no complicated xpath expressions. The xpath/xsl/shema/dtd syntax/programming questions are short and they test your understanding of the concepts.
Louis.
