To prepare for Test 000-272, it is first recommended that you are familiar with the job role description and the parameters this certification is based on, as well as have knowledge of the topics outlined in the test objectives/skills measured on the test. Compare your own technical level to the test objectives and the recommended training resources, and then determine for yourself how much preparation you require. Note that these educational sources are recommended, but not required (*) before taking a certification test.
You can prepare for the test through the Tutor Approach (classroom, instructor led course) or the Self-Study Approach. Sources within each approach collectively cover the skills measured on the test.
To prepare via the Tutor Approach, take course [ (WM664 or VM664 or ZM664) or (WM764 or VM674) ] and refer to the sources with an * in front of them. Note that per this formula, you are only required to take 1 course.
To prepare via the Self-Study Approach, omit the course, and refer to all other sources with and without the * in front.

IBM WebSphere Message Broker V8 Application Development I
Course duration: 5 days
Course number: WM664
Students learn about the components of the WebSphere Message Broker development and runtime environments. The course explores message flow problem determination, with an emphasis on identifying and recovering from errors in message flows. Students then learn how to construct message flows that use extended Structured Query Language (ESQL), Java, and PHP Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP) to transform messages. The course also explores how to control the flow of messages using various message processing nodes, and how to use databases and maps to transform and enrich messages during processing. Various messaging transports are reviewed at a high level, so that students gain a basic understanding of how message flows can use web services, Java Message Service (JMS), and other transport mechanisms. In addition, students learn to write efficient message flows by applying the concepts of message parsing, serialization, and message modeling. Finally, students explore advanced topics, such as how to extend the functionality of WebSphere Message Broker by using adapters and other WebSphere products.
Throughout the course, extensive hands-on lab exercises allow students to practice the skills and concepts that are discussed in the lectures. The hands-on labs cover topics such as creating and testing message flows, message modeling, problem determination, error handling, and using a wide range of message processing nodes to construct message flows.

IBM WebSphere Message Broker V8 Application Development II
Course duration: 5 days
Course number: WM674
This course extends your knowledge of the WebSphere Message Broker product, focusing on using WebSphere Message Broker to develop, deploy, and support platform-independent message flow applications. These applications use various messaging topologies to transport messages between service requestors and service providers, and also allow the messages to be routed, transformed, and enriched during processing.
Topics in this course include writing message flows that use web services, working with JMS transports, modeling and testing messages with the Data Format Description Language (DFDL), and aggregating messages from multiple sources. You also learn how to extend message flows to interact with FTP servers and other products, and how to use the publish/subscribe messaging topology. They implement built-in patterns and learn how to develop, test, and deploy user-defined patterns. You also learn how WebSphere Message Broker interacts with other products, and how to use the record and replay facility to capture and view messages during processing. Extensive labs throughout the course enable you to practice your new skills.
The lab environment for this course uses the Windows platform.
