Hi,
I am planning to seat for the IBM WAS Standard Edition V3.5 Test but I do not know how to prepare for it.
Can someone help me by recommending the books to read for the exam? I am not sure whether I should study the entire product documentation.
Please help!

I am working on the level 2 jcert exams. For level 2 exams, you can take either Visual Age 3.0 or WAS Standard Edition 3.5 and for level 3, you only have one choice WAS Advance Edition 3.5. Now my concern is that Visual Age 3.5 has been out for a while and I don't know when IBM will withdraw 3.0. In the case that a person who has already earned IBM Certified Solution Developer with 3.0, will the withdraw of the exam invalidate the title too?

I dont think they will withdraw the title. Only thing is you need to mention the version for which you are certified developer.
Hope this answers your query.
regards

I passed test with good score recently.
My recommendation for prepareing this test is that:
1. Pass Jave 2 Programmer(SUN) test.
2. Read and really understand the book of Core Servlet and JSP(ISBN: 0-13-0893404-4). I prefer this book than the IBM recommended book of Java Servlet Programming. (The core servlet and jsp is much easier to understand for the beginner and is thinner)
3. Download and play the webSphere server v3.5, try to make the sample programs works. I do not like the document come with the server. I recommend the IBM webSphere 3.5 Handbook(available for download in pdf format at http://www.redbooks.ibm.com)
4. Take the Mock test serveral times and try to really understand the points under each question (sometime in order to understand the points you need to refer to other document whatever you have)
5. Take the test.
(I do not think Enterprise Development with VisualAge for Jave version 3 and Servelt and JSP programming with IBM websphere studio and visualage for Jave very useful.)
Key part:
1. servlet, jsp, JDBC part in Core servlet and JSP
2. Chapter 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 23 in webSphere handbook 3.5
Passing score 50%
You have 75 min to answer around 55 questions
PS. webSphere version 4 is coming very soon!
Good Luck!
