Can somebody tell me more information about IBM 285. I am preparing for SCWCD 1.4. I hope to give exam by end November. I want to specifically know about IBM 285.

What are the areas covered by this exam.
Which book is used for this exam
After I complete SCWCD1.4 approximately how much time would I need for this exam.
Is there any forum (as Javaranch is for SCWCD) for IBM285 exam.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Dishaan,

Every thing you want about IBM-"IBM Certified Associate Developer" ( 285 ) should be here:

The one book which is recommended by IBM is:
An Introduction to Web Application Development with IBM WebSphere Studio
Author: Gary Craig, Peter Jakab

This is a book by IBM Press and is highly recommended for this Test.

For discussion on IBM 285 you might have to go to "Product and Other Certifications " thread.

BTW, i am also having the same plan:
Doing SCWCD frist and then give IBM WEBSPHERE but not sure if 285 , 286 or 287 to give.

Some time back i did post my queries on this forum, you might want to read and suggest some thing to me:
Topic "SCWCD and IBM 285 "

Thanks and All the best.
I agree. Here's the link:
subject: IBM 285
It's not a secret anymore!
