Hi guys,
I cleared Test 489 this morning with 82%, it was tougher than i thought and some of the answer's were confusing (especially when they had given an option of "select the best answer")
Security, Problem Determination, Maintenance and Performance Tuning covered 55%, so be well prepared for it before you appear for the exam.
Thanks and Regards

Hi Prasanth,
Well coz of shortage of time I read the IBM WebSphere 4.0 Handbook only but I will definately suggest you to also go through infocenter once if you wanna score good. Besides theIBM Mock Test, there is also one simulator available for Test 488 which covers some administrative questions. You can find that test over here WebSphereWhizTrial
Thanks and Regards
