Hi Kenneth,
If I am in your position, I would go for Singapore. Actually I was working in Singapore for almost 5 years before I came to US. Idid my higher studies in Singapore too..$4k is not a low income there. Malaysian 6k ringett is equivalent to 4k sing dollars. Life style in Singapore is better when compared to Malaysia. If you live in kuala lampur, then its ok. other wise you would not enjoy much in Malalysia.
In Singapore, if you go for single bedroom flat, it costs you 600$ per month. if you go for 2 bed room flat it costs you 900 to 1000$ based on your location. If you share with your colleagues, it is very cheap...If you are willing to travel for 30minutes or 45 minutes for your work place, it costs you cheaper for the apartments. Moreover public transportations are amazing in Singapore. You would not feel tired. If you spend a normal life, you can save around 2500 sing dollars per month. You spend lavshly, you can save around 1000$....Everything depends on how you want to lead life. If you go for condemenium, it costs you around 2k per month. again it would be cheaper if you share with your friends. Usually those who start their career wont go for that.
After your one year contract, normally company would extend your contract (normally) in singapore. You can demand them atleast 15% to 20% hike in salary. Moreover if you look for a new opportunity after your one year you can demand 25% increase in your next project.
Dont ever do the mistake of finding a new job after your contract is over. Try to have a job in your hand before you come to know about your contract extension...Usually they will do it in the last minute...If you have job in hand, and then search a job, you will be in safer position.. I have experienced this kind of situation. That is why I am insisting you for this...
Hope this reply helps you to make a decision.

Let me know if you need any information. If you know your work location, let me know so that I can suggest you where to look for an apartment...

Good luck for your future..

I got permission to upload my assignment. By the time, I finish uploading, I got session time out error. When I try to upload logging again, permission is denied to upload. What do I do now? How do I know my assignment is uploaded? I have scheduled part 3 exam tommorrow.

Please advise what I need to do

IBM 141 exam was retired last june. Instead IBM has introduced 142 for XML and related technologies. They have introduced ebXML, XSLTC, XFORM, XPATH, etc in 142.
There is no specific book that covers all the exam objectives. You start with w3schools tutorial. You will get some idea and then start with XML bible and professional XML.

well as matter of fact i am also interested in XML certificate but has some doubts, please help me in this regard.

1. What is the difference between 142 exam and 141 exam ?
2. Being almost new to XML what would be the best way to prepare.
3. Can you suggest any good book that covers the exam objectives such that it start with basics.

Thanks in advance,

If you are new to XML, then start with w3schools tutorial. After you understand all the basic concepts, go for professional XML.
I have posted how I prepared for the exam recently. you can go through that and let me know if you require any other information.

All the best

Hi All,
I would like to share with you all that I have cleared IBM 142 XML 1.1 and related technologies with 98% today. This is my second attempt. On March 12th, I gave my first test and got only 33%. I was very confident that I would clear in the first attempt as I am working on Java and XML for the past 7 years. After seeing the questions, I realised that I need more preparation systematically. ******They test you the very basic concept******** I felt that working experience alone cannot make you feel comfortable in the exam without preparing for the exam.... From March 12th to March 22nd, I studied everyday for 3 hrs. I started with w3c tutorial and understood all the concepts mentioned there. Then studied professional XML, XSLT 2.0 reference and practical applications with java and XML... Out of these 3 books, professional XML helped me a lot.... I went through all the XML certification forum online and what ever info i get i noted down and practiced with some examples. So do not worry..You all can make it up...
***Some tips about the exam questions***
1. Try to understand under what circumstances SAX and DOM is used..Clearly understand the difference between two (atleast 2 questions you will get in this topic)
2. Under what circumstances DTD and schema is used (atleast 2 questions you will get in this topic)
3. Try to remember XPATH axis (definitely 1 question you will get in this) **for all the above 3, w3scools tutorial is more than enough)
4. try to work on some examples with schema and DTD (they test you only the basic skills like given schema, which xml declaration is correct etc and vice can expect atleast 3 to 4 questions from this section)
5. Try to work on XSLT (concentrate on conditional loop)
Concentrate on very basic concept rather than solving complex XSLT, XQUERY...
Hope this post helps uyou guys about the exam pattern..

All the best...
