I am sure you will then solve it easily. Though questions hardly repeat in PHP certification test but still patterns remain the same and these questions will help you a lot. There are 150+ questions and various tips and tricks regarding the exam. Download it from here absolutely free.

j) Strings


To have a swift go through this exam just follow the following steps which I recommend personally:-

a) First of all have a good understanding of PHP language and its syntax. Use a good book available in market and read it once throughout without caring about the exam syllabus.

b) Do a small project on PHP. If you can’t manage live projects just go for a dummy project. This will help you in error tracing and debugging

c) Now it’s time to purchase a zend PHP certification guide. It is also available freely as a E-Book.

d) Go through every minute detail of the book. Underline the important points and make notes if required.

e) Since the exam is mostly practice oriented and not theoretical you have to practice coding in detail. Learn to play with codes and note down the things you learnt.

f) Have a quick reading of paul reinheimer’s guide, though it is written for PHP 4 yet it is very useful. Download it at http://fileme.us/22j85e

g) The most important guide for this exam is PHP manual itself. Go through the manual keeping in mind the exam syllabus. Read the user comments given below each topic in the manual.

h) For learning the function prototypes use the w3schools tutorial. It has a precise definition of each function

i) Revise your study guide again and again till you become comfortable with each topic. Don’t forget to make notes; it will help you for the last week preparation.

j) Next try to practice as much questions as possible. Practice every question given in this guide and understand the concept behind them. You can also purchase the latest practice papers from ZEND store

k) For the last minute preparations use your own notes which you made.

l) Don’t panic during the exam, have a confident outlook towards the test.

m) Have a mini breakfast or lunch before the exam. Don’t be hungry or thirsty during the exam time.


Hello friends I am Snehil Kamal, an independent software and web developer. I recently passed the zend PHP certification exam (ZCE). So I want to share my experiences with you about the exam pattern, types of questions asked and strategy needed. I am sure after reading this guide and solving the questions given henceforth you will be able to go through the exam swiftly. Firstly I want to remind you that this exam is not as easy as it is thought to be. I could pass it in my second attempt. I used to think that having a multitude of experience as a PHP developer I may pass it without any significant preparation. But I was very wrong and hence lost my 125$ in the first attempt. There are a lot of misconceptions all over the net about this exam. Just ignore them and start preparing on your own. ZCE is one of the most difficult certification exam in IT industry. Also there are least number of PHP certified candidates as compared to other certification exams. This ultimately adds the value to this certification. The difficulty of this test arises from lack of proper study guides and practice questions available. Hence in this guide I have tried to cover all the major tips and tricks and dump questions which may help you a lot in clearing this exam. Believe me I got a 5 times increase in my clients after becoming Zend certified engineer. So start preparing well for a good career in PHP and web development
