I'm preparing for Test 406 - WAS SE v3.5. Got a few basic questions. Can anyone give me a hand?
1. How many correct answers are needed to pass Test 406?
2. Is there a web page on ibm.com where this info is listed?
(http://www-4.ibm.com/software/ad/certify/websphere/v35/adcswsv35.html doesn't help. Emailed IBM but no one bothered to reply, which makes me love Sun's customer service.)
3. To register in North America, do you normally go to 2test.com, schedule a date, then enter your credit card info?
4. Books. I got 2 redbooks, one is Servlet and JSP Programming, by Ueli Wahli (sg24-5755-00), another is WebSphere v3.5 Handbook, by Ken Ueno (isbn 013-041-6568). I hope to take the test in the near future. Which one is better?
5. Prometric rep says there are 55 questions for 75 minutes. Is that time tight? Or just fine?
I appreciate your help.
Tony

hi
i passed the test 406 2 weeks back, its not very tough if you have already worked with websphere before. thats encouragement
to answer your questions now,
1) the answer your prometric rep has given is basically right, you have 55 questions and 75 min time(roughly) and you need 50% to pass so that makes about 28 or lets say 30 questions to pass.
2) well ibm does say that you need to get 50% to pass
3) you can go to 2test.com and register, thats what i did and i had no problem what so ever
4) the 2 books you have are the ones that are prescribed for that test, you need to go through both of them. other than that go through the infocenter, thats one of the good references.
now after that there is the practice test on the ibm site, take that test many times about a week before the exam that should give you a basic idea of how the test goes.
get the servlet API thoroughly, there are quite a few misleading questions that you can answer only if you have that API at your finger tips.
and finally all the best, all said and done its not a very difficult nut to crack. you can do it
bye
