Just wondering if there were any other books besides the red books that anyone has used to pass the IBM 489 test.

Thanks for the reply - I appreciate it. I've been looking for something that will be a study guide for the test, but I've yet to find a book like that (similar to the numerous Java certification bokks). What about:
WebSphere Application Server Bible by Bryon Kataoka
IBM(R) Websphere(R) Application Server
by Ron Ben-Natan, Ori Sasson
Will these references be as reliable/valuable as the official red book, or should I bite the bullet and go all out?
Again, thanks for the response.
I agree. Here's the link:
