Sabrina:
The current IBM Mock exam has 44 questions.
The current IBM Actual exam has "approximately" 57 questions.

One person from my class just took it yesterday, and failed miserably with 51%. He told me there were 55 questions and passing score is 58%. He has prepared for 3 months. This is what he said: any sample test is even not near the real test, whiz is useless, very reading-intensive ( he did not have enough time to think over), about 70% scenario-based questions, guessed 80% of the questions, none from sample tests, cover every area such as WSDL, UDDI, SOAP, XSL-FO, DOM, SAX, XML Signature. And he got 0% on architecture.
I guess I need more time to crack the above six areas and read all the recommendations. Based on what he aid, I believe IBM loewered passing score to 58% but raised the difficulty level.
BTW, is there any resource on SOAP, WSDL, UDDI, and XML signature?

Maybe, SOAP and WSDL tutorials at http://www.w3schools.com/default.asp
will do.
XML signature Recommendation doesn't seem to be big:
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-core/
Did he really mention UDDI? Sounds scary, I never touched it. And I've thought I covered almost all the areas.

He emphasized the above six areas and I jot down, but he did not want to talk about how is the percentage for each, and I did not want to ask more . He also said he got 90% on the new sample, and it is misleading. Anothing, he said most of questions are very practical, people with experience may answer better. I am a bit scared too, just do not want to waste my $150 and damage my confidence.

I see.
Than let's learn more!
BTW, I just checked W3Schools. In WSDL Tutorial it covers UDDI a little bit.

Thanks for the critical information! It makes me to believe IBM is in constant changing (unstable) mode of the test. The changes of the number of questions/passing score, the website wrong info, the different responses from different testers, the sample test itself, etc. etc.
Give them some time to makeup their mind, please!

I guess they might be updating their question bank. But one thing is certain: they will maintain the difficulty level for this test. The person I mentioned got 98% on his SCJP six months ago. You can see the difference between IMB certs and SUN certs.

Well, I agree, confusion does persist in IBM.
I appeared for IBM test on 8th August from Pakistan, and could not made it. IBM last week, send me a free voucher to reappear for the exam, and assured me that passing score is 50%.
I got it double checked with concerned officials at IBM, and they told me that passing score has now been lowered to 50%, a week ago.
For this reason, I was bit surprised to read of candidates still reporting passing score of 58%, whereas IBM officials and their web site is telling 50%.
