I am now Zend Certified Engineer :)

Hi all,

It is been long since i wrote blog last. I was busy dealing with company projects, and also do some preparation for zend PHP5 exam. I looked for testing center in our city, Ulaanbaatar/Mongolia, and luckily found active 1 pearson vue center in Science and Technology school. First try and pass :) The guys in the testing center were very happy that i was the first engineer passed Zend PHP5 Exam from Mongolia. Here i now going to share my experience with you, on how i prepared, what i read, where i went. etc...
  1. I worked for 7 years on web based project using different languages such as PHP/Java/.NET
  2. and them i managed web based project for last 2 years
  3. and then i visited Zend website to buy practice test package
  4. and i went to amazon to buy few books including PHP Objects, Patterns and Practice, High Performance MySQL (actually i didn't order them for Zend exam, but for daily use ;)
  5. and find nearest testing center and register for exam using Pearson vue website
  6. and finally take a good sleep before exam night, no practice test, not reading
  7. passed it. My certificate verification is here.
Actually i am not fan of certification, but the zend certification was the something that we really need, espacially for offshore web project outsourcing In the near futures, we plan our employees to be certified by Zend.

Thanks,
Bayar
