Today I passed the SpringSource Core Spring Certification with 82%. I was a a “grandfathered” candidate and therefore did not attend the course provided by SpringSource.

I have long experience with Spring (> 4 years), but some of the topics from the objectives were totally new to me, because I have never used them (e.g. JMX support). As a learning tool, I highly recommend going through the official documentation AND create simple examples for every relevant feature. Besides that I used the JavaBlackBelt exams for Spring -- this for instance, and the book "Spring Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach" from Apress, which is a bit verbose w.r.t. basics of general topics (like testing, JMS, ...), but contains nice examples for most of the features which occur in the test.

The questions themselves were (from my point of view) both fair and carefully elaborated by the exam team.

Do we get a hard copy of the certificate ?
how long does it take to get the hard copy and soft copy to come?
