Hi all,

Yesterday I cleared the XML exam with 81%. I found the exam to be easy other than very long questions and exhbits.

Thanks alot for all your support.

Thanks alot to all of you...--

Ranjan and Shatabdi,

I would suggest to take the new XML exam 142 which will be releasted after 20 days( I was in a hurry, couldnt wait).
I do not know the material for the new exam, but for current 141 exam, following are some useful resources:

1. O'reily XSLT book.
2.XML In a nutshell
3.Professional XML 2nd edition.
4.Whizlab exam simulator

Also I found a xml editor(more than a editor), xml cooktop which is very very helpful in learning XPATH and XSLT. You can write XPATH location paths against xml document and see the result with out writing any code. Same for XSLT.
there website is
XML Cooktop

Hi Ahmad,

81% is a good score. Congrats !!!

I wanted to ask you a few question. How much time you devoted for the preparation? Did you had prior experience with XML? Was the whizlab simulator good/ helpful?

Thanks and Regards,
- Namit

Thanks Namit,

I had a preparation time of a month.

Whizlab simulator is very helpful during preparation. After using the simulator you start preparing and studying from a exam point of view.

So I would suggest it.
