I felt that exam was very easy.
Got surprised by seeing the score as I got 79% in the Mock Exam on Sunday.
I could finish the first round of answering in one hour 10 mins then reviewed two times.
Tones of scenario questions, you can easily answer by eliminating wrong options and choosing appropriate ones.
This forum helped me a lot. Follow all the questions posted here.
I Used Prof XML, XML Schema (ppt and primer) for preparation. Gone thru some specs ( XSLT, XPointer, Xlink).
Here are some of the concepts from which I got the questions:
Schema - Using List, Enumeration,Union , xsd:list concepts, include vs import

XSLT - Using document, number functions , Role of XPath in XSLT ( in which elements), parm vs variable
Schema vs. DTD (one question)
DTD - conditional sections
XSL-FO block level elements

DOM vs. SAX (Four questions)
SAX - Getting Attributes

DOM - Document interface - factory methods (createElement etc)
XLink - scenario question
SOAP - one very basic question
Web Services - one scenario question
No question on Security, Signature, UDDI

Four questions from Mock exams (140 & New)

Hi Already certified guys,
Can you please help me in finding the information about IBM XML Certified Developers in IBM site?
And also I would like to know how IBM would calculate this 87% in spreading for each objective (Architecture, Information Modeling etc).
I am not able to understand my score card it says 0% for Architecture objective.
Regards,
Samba

Congrats, It indeed is wonderful. Can you double check, is passing score 58 or 50. Well, as per the IBM Website, passing score should have been 50

Usually, 0% means that you didn't answer correct any of the question(s) in that section (Architecture, in your case).

Dear Samba
did u buy the xml schema book by wrox. the book is not yet released in indian reprint. so it is quite costly. (around 2k). is there any other book that can be read instead of the wrox xml schema?
2ndly if the book is a must have(as i see in the xmlfaq) and if u still have the xml schema. i would love to buy it from u if u want to sell.
best regards.

Hi Sridhar,
I guess the XMl Schema online PPTs and W3c's Primer would be enough for Exam preparation.
Regsrds,
Samba
