Just incase you were thinking of writing some IBM Certifications, there will be a new promotion in July called Take It Again which allows you to rewrite a failed certification test free. I have to re-write my WebSphere Integration Developer, WebSphere Process Server and DataPower certifications and am waiting for this promo to start before […]
Prepare for the IBM Certification Test 992, IBM WebSphere Business

information about the business process management industry and tool usage.

I re-wrote IBM DataPower Certification test 284 over the weekend and passed with a 75% when requiring a 60%. Taking the course made my life a lot easier. I still spent two hours writing and reviewing the answers but I was a lot more confident about passing when I ended the test. I did notice […]
This is the course that I am attending this week. This will be nice as I’ll have a hardcopy of the course contents. Also, being able to go through the content slowly over a week with hands-on usage of the datapower box will be a huge bonus. When I was trying to learn the machine […]
Sometimes the stars just align perfectly. I’m trying to get my DataPower Certification and IBM’s business partner relations team is offering a free course on DataPower next week in Markham. It pays to be in a city with an IBM Office. I’ll be in attendance there and hopefully sitting in the room for 5 days […]
I wrote three certification tests: Test 253, IBM WebSphere Application Server, Network Deployment Test 142, XML 1.1 and Related Technologies Test 664, SOA Fundamentals Test 253, IBM WebSphere Application Server, Network Deployment As I had mentioned before, I attended a WAS 6.1 Administration business partner course run out of the IBM Toronto Lab. I have […]
I was recently asked about where to find resources on WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Integration Developer in order to pass certification tests 093 and 094. I responded to basically search developerworks for articles along with IBM RedBooks. I didn’t really like responding without concrete links, so I did a little browsing of the site […]
If you are attending Impact 2008, don’t forget that you are allowed to write three IBM certification tests for free this week! I’m a big fan of free, so I always max out my conference allotment. If you need some suggestions for tests, check out my previous entries about my impressions having written SOA Solution […]
Just thought I’d outline my current thinking towards which tests I’m going to prepare to write at the WebSphere Services Technical Conference 2008: 284 – IBM WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliances Firmware V3.6.0 093 – IBM WebSphere Process Server V6.0, System Administration 252/253 – IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment V6.0/V6.1 Core Administration 664 – SOA […]
Generally, I’m not a big proponent of the certification process. They tend to be too focused on the ‘book smarts’ of the products instead of probing the candidate on their knowledge of the core abilities. But last year at the WebSphere Services Technical Conference, I took advantage of the attendee benefit of writing free certification […]
