I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This sentence makes no sense to me:

> Also I would like to know what are the product will be the plus point with WAS.

I would suggest that you certify for V 7.0 and/or V 8.0

I was able to use the Cert-FX testing program to help me be prepared.

Thanks for your quick reply!!!
Is this 000-377 is an Advanced WAS certification like WAS 000-806??

Also http://www.certfx.com/ is too costly. If you don't mind can you share dumps with me and any documentation for in depth knowledge.

How much experience do you have with WebSphere, and which versions?

A good starting place is the "IBM WebSphere Certification" page:

I am having 5yrs of experience in WAS6.1 but dedicated to WAS ... working on couple of other product as well :)

Links which you have provided not helping much. I am having already that.

But if you can provide any documentation that will be great. Also how can I achieve Mastery in WAS :). I mean what approach should I follow to achieve at Architect level
