Hi,
Today I have passed the IBM XML 141 certification with 72%..I am a silent member of this group..First Of all I want to thank Javaranch and all its members....
I want to share some of my thoughts on this exam which might be helpful to future aspirants...
My preparation was for 4 weeks...
My Resources:
Professional XML (wrox)
Professional Schemas (wrox)
XSLT Doug Tidwell
Essential XML reference

Rogers PPT tutorial for schemas and xslt(very good)

I have done all the mock exams in the Javaranch mock exam links

Did not go through the W3c specs...I should have done ..but had no printer access...
-----------------
Now coming to the part ...how the real exam is... I Felt it was very tough.....There were some(4-5) questions related to XML rendering....I did not go thru XLINKS, XSL-FO and Xpointer ...I felt i should have gone thru these topics....One more thing was the DOM and SAX api....Some of the questions require that we go though the API's very well...

Any way I am happy i got thru....Best of luck to all of you who will be taking this exam in Future...
Thanks

Hi Harsha,
I am Java Developer...Not much experience with XMl except understanding the cofiguration files generated for J2EE applications....I was planning for XML certification since a year....but not much serious study except for going through some topics...But this four weeks was very my preparation was rigorous...I have spent almost 6-7 hrs daily for this certification...

Hi Sirisha,
Thanks for the reply, I am also a Java Developer and all the XML stuff I know is for J2EE also.
looks like I have a lot of reading I got to do before I get ready for the exam.
Thanks and Best of luck
Hope to see you around answering our 'XMLwannabeee's' questions...
