You need this, but you'll hate it too! May 8 2005
By Bob - Published on
I just passed my Zend Certified Engineer test. It wasn't easy. For preparation, I used both the Official Zend Study Guide (by Zend Technologies) and this book. I often found myself frustrated by the numerous errata in both books, but there were significantly more mistakes in this book (ranging from having the wrong answer listed in the answers section to typos). The positive aspect of this is that it forced me to spend more time with the online php manual answering my questions. I found the questions on the actual exam to be more like those in this book, than from the Official Study Guide, but you really need the Official Study Guide to make some sense of the answers in here as well. There were questions in this book covering exam topics that wheren't covered in the Official Study Guide. That's reason enough to get it.

The print quality on the pages is sub-standard, but the questions and thorough answers were very helpful.

Simply put, I wouldn't have had any chance of passing the exam if it weren't for this practice test book, even though it's aggravating at times.

garbage Aug. 7 2005

The previous reviewer was too generous. The numerous flaws in the book were so offputting that I finally gave up in disgust and discarded the book. One might expect that a book which asserts to prepare you for any exam would be proofread especially carefully. It appears that the only proofreading was just of simple grammar. Nothing on the logic or accuracy of what was actually written.

I strongly urge you to look for another text. Don't waste your time with this one.

Buy it ONLY if you are taking the exam Oct. 3 2005
By K. Yagi - Published on
- By working out and understanding the reasoning behind each question in this book, you will do "well" on the Zend Certification Exam.
- Excellent questions, many tricky qwerks about PHP is explained.

- The book has errors that will confuse you for hours and the authors are not too responsive in taking care of it. [...]
- This book was not designed to teach, please don't expect to be taught PHP through this book.
Hated it Aug. 26 2013

I hated it, but I gave it 5 stars. Why? Well, first of all, I did a few chapters out of it, and passed my ZCE 5.3.

I however did hate it, as the way the questions were formatted were terrible -- I found out this is exactly how Zend does it. So, with that in mind, this book makes an excellent study piece for the ZCE, and I would recommend it. It is a little outdated now, however, so a newer one by this publisher in the future may be a solid investment.

Highly recommend for all PHP developers, you don't have to be preparing for ZCE to buy this book.
