I am working on getting this certification:
IBM Certified Solution Developer - IBM WebSphere Application Server, Standard Edition, V3.5
In order to prepare for the 406 Exam, I was going to take the N4410 course from IBM...but it has been cancelled on me twice (2 diff cities) due to low enrollment.
Has anyone taken this course? They refuse to send the curriculum even if I pay a fee. I was looking forward to taking the course, because I have only installed Websphere.
Given that - and my SCJP and 2 yrs. exp with Java - do you think I can pass 406 Exam in a reasonable amount of time - say 1 month?

Johanna,
I know some people who took N4430 several months ago (not N4410 though). Their feedback was: if you had used WebSphere before, the course would be helpful; otherwise, it would be challenging. Catch 22, huh? I wouldn't be surprised that enrollment for either course is low.
I'm also preparing for Test 406. I don't think it's easy to find good test prep materials for it. Preparing for MCSE or SCJP was more straigtforward -- you would have a whole bunch of prep materials and you knew you could nail it given reasonable time. For ICS WebSphere, different story.
But hang in there! You can find posts from other guys who passed 406.

Just monkey around with WebSphere and you'll be okay.
Plus, if you have time, read the IBM recommended stuffs - servlet specs, JSP specs, WAS 3.5 handbook, etc.
Good luck!

Forgot one thing, take the ICE test before you sit the real one.
