Hi Guys,
Is it important to go through the implementation
examples in this book? For example, the examples
in Chapter 24 - SOAP.
Thanks for your answer!
Richard

Based on others who took the test, not many questions are about SOAP. I am also reading this part, and it is unreadable. I will probably skip it since I do not have too much time.

Richard,
What ever you learn will never go waste. It will be useful some time, some day. If you have time, you may go through it. What I suggest is just have a look at the SOAP envelop format, the various elements. You need not look deep into the coding aspects, only need to have a basic understanding of it. Questions would be of beginner level to check if you have the first level understanding of WebServices/SOAP/UDDI.
Hope this helps. Good luck,
Rakesh.

Rakesh, you are absolutely right. Is there any tutorial available so we can grasp it more easily? This is probably the hardest part. I will probably come back to this part and read it again. On the other hand, I aslo think Jeff's strategy is right, if we spend equally amount of time on every topic, we may end up fail the test, since too many stuff to prepare. Focusing on the important parts is a good idea?

If your preparation time is limited, you need to focus on 3 things:
(1) XML Schema
(2) XSLT
(3) DTD
Slightly lower priority, but still important are:
(4) DOM
(5) SAX
(6) XPath
Everything else has high-level or brief coverage on the exam.

One more thing is that XSLT is based on XPATH and hence they go together w.r.t preparation for the exam
