Yesterday, I passed Web Services OCWSD 1Z0-897 exam with 76% score.

I want to thank all the Javaranchers here for their valuable help.
Without it I cannot even imagine of preparing for this exam.

Here is my experience.

I am a SAHM, not working for last 3 years. I have little experience in Servlets and JSPs.
I want work on Java/J2ee in future and interested in learning new technologies.
I have near to none experience in Web services but wanted to learn it.
I purchased my voucher for web component exam. But did not feel challenged. So decided to prepare for Java
Webservices Certification instead and YES! i did it.

This one was really tough.
I was preparing for 4-5 months.
I followed the path, what most people suggested here on this forum.

1. I started reading Martin Kalins book. Honestly I felt, for a newbie, this book is very heavy on brain.
I will blame my lack of knowledge and experience and not the book.
I was looking for something easy to get into Java Webservices and I found video lessons by Koushik on Javabrains.com
It was very useful. It helped me to get introduced to web services.
After these lessons I read the book and so many things started to make sense.
2. Next I read MZ's and Ivans Notes and Mz's quiz parallelly. Really appreciate these guys for their work and making it available to others freely.

3. I also did a lot of googling and referred to links specified here and there, in the forums and in notes.
This forum was a tremendous help. Whenever I had any question, I searched the forum and it was already discussed here. :-)
I regret that I did less coding and programming assignments or could have achieved better score.

4. Lastly I did Enthuware Tests! I took all standard tests on Enthuware. Its very close to real exams. It got me ready for actual exam.

Overall it was a great Experience.
Preparing for this exam was like reading an interesting Novel. You cannot wait to finish it when you are reading. But once finished you miss reading it a lot. :-)

Thanks!

Hi Rohini,

Would you mind sharing the score card? Just wondering what is the weightage at objective level for your case!

Thanks Rohini for this info.

I have another score card by Mehtab Alam who took it on on 10/25. This will give fair idea about the weightage at main objective level.
