Last week I passed the XML exam with a score of 79% , Thanks Hari and Pradeep for your IBM XML Certification Success tutorials, it would not have been possible for me to get started for the exam preparation without your tutorials. I read the tutorial two to three times before reading other books or materials. Thanks for all javaranch members for their very valuable information that helped me for the exam preparation.

My Scores:
Architecture - 18% - 100%
Information Modeling - 27% - 66%
XML Processing � 33% - 88%
XML Rendering � 11% - 66%
Testing and Tuning � 11% - 66%

My preparation:
Two months - 2 to 3 hrs a day, 4 to 6 hrs on weekends

Profession XML, I read only the chapter about DTD.
