Hi, Varun.
I did not know anything about web services 2 years ago.

My first approach is to read Java Web Services Up and Running (1st edition).
For the exam, this book has some helpful code examples, like the basic steps to build web services with JDK 6, message handler, logical handler, dispatch, mutual authentication.
Some codes like Rest services with Yahoo, does not work properly. You don't need to worry about that.
You may want to skip chapter 6 and 7 of this book for the exam.

I also recommend to read Bill Burk's Restful Java with JAX-RS (2nd edition) for the basics of JAX-RS. It uses RestEasy, which won't be on the exam.

Also, the WSIT tutorial , MZ's notes, Ivan's notes are must read for the exam. I highly recommend you to buy Ethuware and EPractice Lab to practice.

If you want to take an online course, I personally recommend you to take the web service online course from University of California, Irvine's extension program.
It costs $650 US dollars and the course lasts for 5 weeks. You will get some hands on knowledge about the basics of web services (SOAP and REST).

Hi Himai,

As you said do we need to skip chapter 6 from Java Web Services_ Up and Running, 2nd Edition ? Isnt that important from exam point of view ?

I read that WS Security is very important and hence can you suggest from where can we start on this topic and get enough content to crack the exam. Also,c an you share the WSIT tutorial links please?

I donot find any link or place where I can get Ivans notes. Is it necessary to read both MZs notes and Ivans notes or any one will do. And since the exam will have both 5 and 6 version of WS questions do I need to read both MZs 5 and 6 version of study guide and quiz.

Here is Ivan's notes at http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/content/Exam-Objectives-5.pdf or Ivan's personal web site at http://www.ivankrizsan.se/my-books/
You need to email MZ to ask for his notes.

MZ and Ivan's notes are must read. You must read both version 5 and 6 of MZ's notes. I had 3-4 exam questions coming from version 5.

Also, in order to pass the exam, I highly recommend you to do mock exams from Enthuware and EPractice Lab. You may notice some ranchers said EPractice Lab has a lot of wrong answers and etc. But Epractice Lab is still helpful.

MZ has two sets of notes linked to from our FAQ:

The quiz covers both version 5 and 6 and they are helpful.
