IBM SOA Foundation (Test 669) with 100% marks ...and I couldn't stop smiling :)

Last week I took the IBM SOA Foundation exam and I scored a 100%. I just couldn't stop myself from smiling like a maniac for a long long time. I just wanted to shout out aloud and tell everybody my perfect score

I took a 2 week's break from work and studied for almost 12 hours everyday. Now I feel my efforts were definitely worth it.
For all you guys who are preparing for the same, this is what I did

I studied from the following IBM Redbooks. Some of which I feel was not required, but i studied them anyways, not wanting to leave any stone (book) unturned . You can find them here. Just do a search for SOA and you will find more than you want. You might also find certain case studies. Do read them too.

  • IBM.Certified.SOA.Asociate-SOA.fundamentals.in.a.nutshell
  • Introduction.to.a.Service-Oriented.Architecture
  • Best.Practises.for.SOA.Management
  • Understanding.SOA.Security.Design.and.Implementation
  • Patterns-SOA.Foundation.Service.Creation.Scenario
  • XML.on.ZOS.and.Os390-Introduction.to.a.SOA

  • Secondly, I read about a group - ibmsoacert - on yahoo from a post by some member on this forum. Here, I dug out some whitepaper material, PPTs and 108 questions. These are good. Do not give them a miss.

    Last, but not the least, I got my hands on "SOA for Dummies". It's a wonderful book, I must say. For a beginner like me, this was the best material to start with.

    Finally, I gave the exam. Now when I'm writing this, still can't stop smiling


    All the best to all of you guys preparing for the exam.
    Take Care and God Bless

    Hi S Sandy,
    It has now been a few years. Did the certificate time pay off?
