Passed IBM SOA Foundation 000-669

I just cleared exam today with 98%.

My path to certification:

1. Read SOA Fundamentals in a nutshell - Free download
Was not convinced about the document's depth
2. Read IBM's SOA Foundation - An Architectural Introduction and Overview - Version 1.0 - (skipped Appendix) - Free download
This gave me a good feel and confidence
3. Read Exploring IBM Smart SOA technology & Practice (skipped Chapter 4) - Free download
This made my understanding comprehensive

As I do always, I took my own comprehensive notes from all of the above. Went through few times to make sure I get a full hold

4. Went through 108 questions.. (to make sure I dont blow away the $200 easily..)
Made few mistakes. Drilled couple times to make sure I got some semantics right.

5. Gave the exam

Note: Study hours it took for me - about 60-80 hours (with lovely disruptions from my 4 year old)

Thanks
