This book should be removed from sale and then idiots like me would not buy it by mistake.
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.
In general the tone of the Zend certification involves very close attention to detail and syntax rather than very broad knowledge of PHP.
