Thanks all for your help. Today I cleared IBM test on 141.
I got 4 or 5 questions from DOM and SAX topics. Few questions(2 or 3) were repeated from the IBM sample tests 140 and 141. Lot of questions from XSLT and XSD. 3 or 4 questions came from XSL-FO. One question involving SOAP, WSDL and UDDI. One question related to XML Query. No questions from XML Signature/XML Encryption.
At least 10-12 questions had 2 to 3 correct answer choices. That is the toughest part of the exam.
50 % of the questions were purely theoretical and looked simple. But the answer choices were bit tricky.
Around 20% scenario type large questions.
Remaining ones were having code snippets.
I read:
* Quick Reference Skonnard.
* Sams Learn XML in 24 hours - Michael morrisson(indeed this book motivated me as I did not know much about XML one month before - so a good book for a novice to start with)
* Rogers PPT for XML Schema
* ZVON Tutorials on XSLT and XPath
* W3Schools tutorial on SOAP, WSDL and UDDI.
* IBM Developerworks for Scenario Questions.
Downloaded the trial version of XML Spy and had a bit of practice.
Thanks all and this forum is a nice learning place for all people who aspire :roll: to get a IBM XML Certification .

Hi All/Michael,
Thanks once again. The questions asked on XLST and XSD were quite straightforward. Many questions were theoretical. Got questions on xsd:all, complexType, simpleType, enumerated types etc. Mainly they were related to the valid and invalid usage, valid and invalid syntax etc. Few code snippets involved xsd:list, xsd:enumerated types, xs:key, id and idref.
I got less questions in XSLT. I got a code snippet involving following axis. All others were scenario based questions involving XSLT.
One important thing is, few questions (as many as 4 to 5) repeated from IBM Sample tests 140 and 141.
Wish you all Good Luck !
Rajan

Is IBM Sample tests 140 and 141 - one or two tests. I see the 141, 140 was replaced, is there still a practice test?

Here are the links:
http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/
http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/library/x-xsltwork/index.html?dwzone=xml
There is a good tutorial on XML. At the end there are 3 case studies, which may help you as they are scenario based.

Hope this helps !
