Webservices Certification SOAP-centric?

After going through the Exam objectives, it seems the Webservices exam is mainly SOAP-centric with little focus on RESTful Webservice. As I am currently working on REST hence I was thinking to take the exam.

Could anyone please advice whether the exam would serve REST-purpose as well?

Thanks and Regards, Souvik

It is hard to answer your question, since you don't mention version of WSD exam.

WSD 6 exam has RESTful code questions. Reading of Jersey documentation should be enough.
