Passed with 90%...feeling good and relieved....... I would say the available online resources are more than enough to pass the certification. This forum helped me a lot in finding the resources and some very good tips..Thanks JavaRanch and all the members of this forum.... I did not find the exam as tough as I expected it to be. I finished the exam in 50 min. So could have ample time for reviewing the answers. I could not wait to click the 'end' button and did that while I had 10 more minutes of time left.

One need to practice (by coding some examples) the topics CoreXML, DTD, XML Schema, XSLT, DOM, SAX. Rest of the topics one need to have understanding and how to use them. XML Spy is a very good editor to practice. But I did not use it as it has a code assist which will make ur life too easy and doesnt let u type. So I just used a notepad to code, and xerces and xalan to validate and test.
Hi Daisy, Thats really motivating me!! I cleared SCJP last week. Had a plan to give IBM-141. The information you have provided is really useful for people like me (budding state) It was really dark before i joined this forum , but now i have gained confidence and do my best for a high score. Thanks Daisy.
