Need help for Spring Certification Preparation

Hello everybody,

I am preparing for Spring 3.0 certification. I have attended 4 day training course and now referring to book 'Spring in Action 3.0'.
Any help/hint for preparation is welcome.

To start with, I have following questions:
1. How are the questions in exam ? I mean, do they ask questions related to the syntax or API?
2. Should I also refer other material than 'Spring in Action 3.0' and course notes ?


Please help, thanks in advance.

Many sites have mentioned about REST being part of Spring 3 certification exam (e.g http://www.selikoff.net/2010/08/20/spring-3-certification-%E2%80%93-about-the-test/)
But, REST is not included in the study guide available at http://mylearn.vmware.com/courseware/152239/core-spring-3.0-certification-study-guide.pdf

Can someone please help.

In multi-choice type questions, do we need to select more than one answers for any question?

No. All questions were single answer. See my signature for my blog post explaining about the exam, what it was like, etc.

I passed it this morning. No REST questions, and did have some questions where you must choose multiple answers.
No fill in code windows or anything like that.

Gavin Lasnitzki's notes at http://springcert.sourceforge.net were the best I found , basically Jeanne's with some additions
and formatting.

The only other advice I feel safe giving is to write lots of little programs, try variations, see which ones break things and
which don't.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
