I passed the exam yesterday with 70%. The exam was tough not closer to the sample test. The questions are kind of wague and even the answers are confusing.
In DOM, most of them are basic ,except two questions about the methods remooveAttribute()...etc. SAX just basic. XSLT - xsl aram, linking shema with tagetnamespace to xml document. 3 questions from XSL Formatting. I was not prepared on this topic. My preparation time was about one and half month. one question on Soap basics & UDDI and 4-5 questions on XML shemas basic and complex types..etc

Thank you all for your informations you posted on Javaranch.

Good luck.

Please share your prepration plan with us.
Did you have any prior experience in XML.
How much time you will think will take a novice for me to prepare for exams ?

Congrates for XML and good luck for the next one.

Thanks

Thank you. I started with www.w3schools.com , and then read the books prof. xml 2nd edition, xml schemas(wrox) and xslt (oreilly) only the preferred chapters mentioned in this forum. I read everyday for 2 to 3 hours for 1 1/2 month. I practiced all the exams for 3 times.

XML quick reference is the best book to read for exam point of view. I did the lab from www.zvon.org. I have practiced xml well formedness, validity, dtds, enitities (external,internal,general,parameter) schemas using XML spy. I skipped xpointer, xquery, xsl formatting (may be thats why i got low score). you should know the basics of SAX/SOAP/WSDL/UDDI in terms of where and how it is used and how they are associated with each other. For DOM you better know some basic methods in the interfaces for attributes/elements.

Questions are more scenario based, like which kinds of architecture better help this situation. couple of questions on xml shema extension based, 2 uestions on schema pattern matching ( these questions were easy, It helped me in getting qualified ). Come to Javaranch when you get confused with any mock question or any concepts in xml.

Thanks to you all,
