Hi,
I passed the test 141 with 87% luckily:-). I think the test is difficult. But this forum does help me much, especially, as i had only one week to prepare the examination. Here is the list of my score:
1.Architecture(100%)
2.Infomation Modeling(93%)
3.XML Processing(77%)
4.XML Rendering(83%)
5.Testing&Tuning(83%)
Some experiences to share:
1. The book "Essential XML Quick Reference" by Aaron Skonnard and Martin Gudgin, is good enough to the test. And it's free for download. This is the only book that i read thru during the preparing.
2. The most important topics: DTD/Scema/DOM/XSLT/XPATH
3. IBM pretest is one of the best source to the test:
a). Two or three questions are from IBM pretest
b). Scenarios can be reused in the real test
4. One or two questions topic: FO/SOAP/Tuning
5. No XML signature
I cannot pass without you. Thanks so much!

Rajesh,
My job is focused on SW design. I knew XML just in 'Concept Level' before, little experiences in programming using XML. So the DOM is my big concern before the test and it DOES be a problem during test. But I think I understand e-Business well, especially in Web Services(--only one question in my test).
I also think I'm lucky that day. The score surprised me too!

Shakthy,
Just make sure you do read the scenarios of IBM Sample Tests(3 versions: a. IBM Test 140; b. IBM Test 141 with 57 questions; c. IBM Test 141 with 44 question--this is the current version in IBM certification site).
During the test, my suggestion is to see the question first, then see the exhibit IF needed.
