yester day, I gave this test. Thanks to this forum and contributors of notes and experiences.

--Newly Added---
Sorry for the late reply.. was not able to access internet. My score sheet: Test date : 4th May 2009 (Mumbai)

Topic : Percentage (No of questions in exam)
xml ws standard: 67 (6)
soap 1.2 ws standard :67 (6)
wsdl and uddi - 100 (5)
jax ws: 80 (5)
JAXR : 100 (6)
SECURITY :80 (5)
WSIT :40 (5)

WITH ABOVE FRAGMENT MY PERCENTAGE COMES TO 66% AND THAT IS WHAT I GOT ( Still its based on recollection which could be wrong but not by far)
For your information, I have more than 1 yrs dev exp in REST and JAXB , but scored least in that.

Questions from new topics were hard core case-study based and options were quite confusing.
I went through mostly MH-Book(old topics-- very good explanations), Ivan's guide(new topics), sun ( web service and j2EE5 tutorial--very selective topics) and
above all BP 1.1(3 times).

I had devoted only 4 days for prepration ( 40hrs), 30th April(General election holiday), 1st May(Labour day), Sat and Sunday.As 42% was easy to get.
1) New topics(REST*,WSIT, JAX-ws to some extent) are not reliable in terms of scoring
unless you have deep understanding of pros and cons in most of the scenarios( read as much document you can do from net)
2) Older topics should should be covered well secure you pass the exam.
3) Exam opriention is shifted to more towards choosing the best suitable tech for a scenario like architect and designer.
5) Spare more time for studay if you aim for 85-95 kind of score (150-200hrs)

All the best to ...friends who are aspiring for this test. Please feel free to reply this thread if you have any question in mind.
