I am planning on taking the 'Spring Professional' Certification, but I havent attended SpringSource Tranining Course on 'Core Spring'.
I have over 2 years exprience in Spring, additional I am planning on going through the following books, Spring in Action, Pro Spring 2.5 and also Spring Reference Documentation, is there anything else I need to cover?

You should be qualified, why not mail to SpringSource?

I am qualified, and I have got the voucher from springsource.

I would like to know - for the exam should I read anything more than the stuff stated above?

Congrats to get the voucher. I don't know much about preparation resources. Maybe you can search in this forum.

Yes you need to have worked on at least two customer cases (in spring) (two reference on each case)
to demonstrate your experience and further it is left on springsource.org to take you, whether as a
"Grandfathered" candidate or not, alternately you can attend a couse for four day and give out certification
exam.

The below link may be of use to you

cheers,

Sure we can form a group.

Sorry I have been a little bit lazy in checking this thread/forum been a bit busy with other things.

Of those who have passed the Spring Pro Certification exam, what is the average amount of time spent studying?

Thank you.
