Has anyone given the IBM Websphere test 286 recently? It would be great if someone could let me know the books and stuff one has to read to pass this test. Just passed the test 285 yesterday.

Why would you take the 285 then take the 286? Why didn't you take the 286 instead of the 285?

Do you plan to also take the 287? If so, skip the 286.

I took the 286 months ago. It was a hard test to study for because there was no study guide available. There was a book for the 285 and the 287, but not for the 286.

Hi Rick,

right. I could not find any book specifically for the test 286. I was planning on giving test 287. But now I have changed my mind and am planning to give the SCJEA test.

In my opinion, this is the only book you needed to master IBM 287, even though some ranchers are not share the same view.

I believe that I failed at 287 test mainly because I used the suggested book above. Due my bad experience, I think that it will not help you to clear the exam. Please check the thread, that I started a week ago
