I passed it with 73%! Thanks all!
I think the exam is not so difficult as described some ranchers. Don't afraid it!
Some questions (about 3-4) are the exactly same as in sample tests! A lot of questions (not very difficult) on XSLT and Schema syntax.
My resources for preparation:
1. Sample chapters from "XML Bible". Chapters about XSLT and Schema are very usefull! I read them a lot of times!
2. 1-st edition of "Professional XML". I read only chapters about XML and DTD syntax.
3. 2-nd edition of "XSLT" of Michael Key. I read only some sections about concepts that described unclear in XML Bible
4. Java API (DOM and SAX)

Congratulations. I, and perhaps others, would be grateful if you could give some indication as to how long you spent studying and how much previous experience of XML you had. I’m trying to muster the energy to go for this exam after passing SCWCD! Many thanks.
Pete.

Which sample tests? JavaRanch's? Sun's? JWebPlus? other?
Congratulations!

Thanks all!
I haven't any working experience with XML before starting the preparation.
My preparation time is about two months (in free time from my work).
I don't remember exactly in what sample tests I saw the exactly same questions. I used both IBM sample tests (141 and old 140) and Whizlab trial test.
I don't remember questions on XSL-FO on the exam.
There were some questions on Schema syntax, XSLT syntax, DOM and SAX syntax. Except this there were some questions on what some technology can and what it can't, which technology you have to use in some circumstances.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
