I have scheduled a time to take the Zend Certification Exam on September 7th, 2005. This should be pretty interesting to see what they put on the test. I feel really comfortable going to take the exam but I will definitely need to study up a bit. For instance the string functions that never really get used and possibly database drivers I have never had a need to use… For instance take a look at oracle if you thought they were all the same.
This should turn out as a very good thing showing that we truely know what we know! Also after this I plan to take the MySQL certification (just the core and then the professional). There are some other certification exams that look likely to take in the future, mainly some more DB specifics such as Postgre and Oracle.
