Hi all,
I have basic knowledge about XML and I would like to study for the XML Certification.

I have been reading reviews about different books, but I don't have the time to read more than one book (I am also studying for the Web Component Developer Certification using Head First Servlet & JSP).

Is there an all in one book I can use to prepare and pass the XML Certification?

How much I the voucher for the XML Certification?

Thank you in advance!
Giovanni

Hi Hari,
After I read your reply I immediately bought the book from Amazon! :-)

I see you are Author of Wizlabs XML Simulator and Article XML Certification Success, is this book enough for the certification? I read some posts where people claimed that XSTL objectives are not covered enough in the book you suggested me.

Anyway...I am going to register for your XML tutorial...

Thank you again!

This BOOK is enough for the certification if you only neeed to pass it and dont have much time to prepare !!

IT will help you just clear the exam !! as it covers the basics and in my personal opinionis sufficient to clear the exam, provided you have some good real world experience developing XML applications !

As numerous ranchers posts claim, if you need to scoree high in the exam, you need to refer a lot of online resources and otehr books . You can start by looking at the links given in this forum at the top or refer to posts of people who have cleared the exam !!

Cool
You will still need this book as IT IS THE Only book that covers most of the XML technologies you will be tested on AND is the prescribed book by IBM for the exam

Hope this helps
