About the Author

Stuart Herbert has designed and implemented solutions for major companies such as Eurostar, Vodafone and HP, and he has been the lead maintainer of the Generic NQS project since 1994. A former systems manager with Orange UK, Stuart is currently one of the developers for Gentoo Linux, where he looks after Gentoo's installer for web-based packages. Daniel Kushner is the director of training and certification at Zend Technologies. As director of training and certification, Daniel is responsible for the Zend PHP Certification program. In addition to designing the certification program, he developed the Zend PHP Training program, which provides the necessary study guide and classes to help PHP developers become Zend PHP certified. George Schlossnagle is a principal at OmniTI Computer Consulting, a Maryland-based tech company specializing in high-volume web and email systems. Before joining OmniTI, George lead technical operations at several high-profile community websites, where he developed experience managing PHP in very large enterprise environments. George is a frequent contributor to the PHP community. Chris Shiflett is a frequent contributor to the PHP community and one of the leading security experts in the field. His solutions to security problems are often used as points of reference, and these solutions are showcased in his talks at conferences such as ApacheCon and the O'Reilly Open Source Convention and his articles in publications such as PHP Magazine and php|architect. Björn Schotte is a German PHP veteran. He co-founded the first German-speaking portal for PHP topics in early 1999, co-organized the first worldwide PHP conference, and has been editor-in-chief of PHP Magazin since 2001. He also co-founded ThinkPHP, Germany's No. 1 PHP solution company dealing mainly with large PHP applications for clients such as HypoVereinsbank, Sixt, Lycos Europe, E.ON, Cap Gemini, Ernst & Young, and others. His company now consists of a team of more than 15 people, including PHP core developers. Marco Tabini is the publisher of php|architect, the premier magazine for PHP professionals, and has worked on websites for clients ranging from small startup operations to the Fortune 500s. Despite having been an IT industry professional for the last fifteen years, he still manages to maintain a reasonable level of sanity-at least most of the time. Marco is also a subject matter expert for the Zend PHP Certification Exam.

Now that the Zend certification has been updated to cover PHP5 there is no reason to buy this book. Instead buy the Zend PHP 5 Certification Guide.

This book should be removed from sale and then idiots like me would not buy it by mistake.

If you are considering the Zend PHP Certification, the only certification currently available for PHP, then this book will give you an idea of the areas you should really be familiar with. If on the other hand you consider yourself a real PHP guru then you probably don't need it. It comes with sample questions and also gives you an idea of how the actual exam works so you know what to expect at the testing centre.
One thing I was glad that it covered was what the exam expects you to know about other technologies used in conjunction with PHP. Do not however expect all the answers to be found in this book, it's not meant to be a definitive guide. I used O'Reilly's PHP Programming as an additional resource and found I was prepared sufficiently.
Considering the cost of taking certification exams it is worth buying to ensure you don't end up resitting.

Very good content, lots of nice test questions, however, far too many errors. You really need to get the errata from the publisher's site otherwise you'll be wondering why on earth an answer is B instead of A when it's just a mistake. Hopefully all will be corrected in a later edition.
In general the tone of the Zend certification involves very close attention to detail and syntax rather than very broad knowledge of PHP.

The book was informative, about a subject I am familiar with. The book's major good point is that it covers the subject with a detail, and also example questions and answers, which give an insight into the complexities of the subject.

Not really made clear this is out of date. Bought this by mistake. I'd suggest buying it direct from Zend to avoid problems like this and to ensure you have the latest version.
