PHP A to Zend Certified Engineer

In PHP A to ZCE, I will take you through 26 different yet equally important topics that will help you become a Zend Certified Engineer. Even if you're not interested in sitting the ZCE-PHP exam, these topics will elevate your understanding of PHP to a whole new level and allow you to become the guru in your company.

In addition to these articles, we offer an online quiz system to test your new-found knowledge. These quizzes test the content in these articles, and are arguably more difficult than the ZCE exam itself. Understanding this content and passing the tests at a high-rate will almost ensure you will become a Zend Certified Engineer!
