I passed WSD 6 exam (1Z0-897) today with 81%. I prepared using Mikalai Zaikin notes (Web Services Developer Guide and Quiz docs).
I also used EPractice Java 6 Web Services Lab software to do practice tests.
Exam asked a lot of questions on best practice on design and implementation of web services, web services security, WSIT/WCF, Rest (such as EJB both singleton/stateless root resource and other questions on JAX-RS) and basically had questions on WS-Addressing, MTOM, low-level APIs, security configuration, SOAP Web Service.....
I found question on EJB root resource JAX-RS deployment (whether to web container or EJB container) and its access by clients trickier to answer.
I really appreciate help I got with MZ notes for this exam preparation.

Thanks MZ - What made my study experience interesting was going through details specified in WSD Quiz Answer document. Many similar questions were asked in the test such as :
HttpURConnection..... <code missing> and we had to place connection.setDoOutput(true). ref:swaRef is in WSDL then correct answer was to choose @XMLAttachmentRef on webservice interface method for correct mapping...
and more.
Thanks so much.

I am preparing for OCEWSD 6 .
Currently I am reading the following books.


1. Java restful web services (Oreilly)
2. java web services up and running.

does these books are sufficient with MZ study material for 1Z0-897.


Thanks

The two reference books are a good start for those who are not familiar with web services.

I took an online 6 weeks web service course from the extension department of University of California, Irvine. It costs $650 US dollars. This online class gave me some basic hand-on experience about web services (SOAP and JAX-RS, SOA, use of SOAP UI). It may not be directly related to the exam. But I learned the basics about web services from this course.

You may want to download Ivan's version 5 of the 411 pages of exam study guide at http://www.ivankrizsan.se/my-books/. Pay close attention to chapter 8-12 of the notes. The information is helpful.

You also need to be aware that questions from version 5 may appear in this exam. For example, you may need to know web service cache (in Ivan's notes) for this exam.
You may also need to read J2EE 5 tutorial's JAXB. Even though webservices.xml (covered in Ivan's notes) are not on the exam objective, you may still need to know what it is and what it contains.
Try to Google search for the difference between StAX and SAX.

Last but not least, I highly recommended Ethuware ($30) and EPractice Labs ($40) mock exams. These are very helpful for you to pass the exam.

In the exam, you may see some questions that you are not quite sure. All you can do is to eliminate those options that you feel they don't make sense.

Good luck.

Since I work full time, it took me 14 months to prepare and review the materials 2-3 times. I did not have any hand on experience with REST/SOAP/JAX-RS/JAX-WS/WS-*. It took me time to learn.
Everyone has different work experience related to web service. If you have some background knowledge about web services, it may take you shorter time to prepare.

The exam has a lot of WS security (WS-*) and best practice and design. There are still a few questions about JAX-WS.
