I'm not too surprised, given I've only been studying for almost two months - I was supposed to take it exactly one month ago - but given the family matters that've interfered in the meantime, it's probably still a feat.
I "squeaked out" a 78, but as they say, all that matters is that you passed.
My breakdown:
1. Architecture (18% of test / scored 70%)
2. Information Modeling (27% of test / scored 73%)
3. XML Processing (33% of test / scored 77%)
4. XML Rendering (14% of test / scored 83%)
5. Testing and Tuning (11% of test / scored 100%)
There were only two distinct exhibits they used during the test, neither of which were very complicated. Almost nothing on Formatting-Objects, and nothing on security.
Well, my next goal is IBM 483 (J2EE) in two weeks, followed by IBM 486 (OOAD with UML) either in late February or early March.
Wish me luck!

Sounds like you're on a roll!

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen all at once.
