Today morning i cleared the exam with 72%. My most of the prepartion was web based as follows:-
DTD's - Skonnard, XML in Nutshell
Schema - Roger Costello PPT (Very good) and some reference from W3C Primer.
XSL - Roger Costello PPT, Skonnard
FO -
DOM & SAX - Skonnard. Mug up the UML diagrams given in Skonnard, as u need to know API's; W3C primer for DOM (It is also good).
XPath, XLinks, XBase - Skonnard
SOAP, WSDL, UDDI - W3C schools.
XLinks -
Mock Exams - JavaRanch gives a good amt. of links + XML@Whizlabs
I would say no mock exams come near to the real exams. The one provided by IBM is good. I scored 73% in that same to what i scored today. Whizlabs very good for scenario based questions and many other things (gives good explanation also) but still i fell it lacked somewhere when compared with real exam.

Hey where is this W3C primer?
Also what are the kind of questions related to DOM and SAX. Are most of them API based?

Daisy: Yes u need to know DOM and SAX API's i.e. from what interface/class they belong to or what API's can be used from the given interface/class.
