The Zend Certification Syllabus and Others

The syllabus comes prior to the preparation. It actually defines the scope, how far or how deep we wanna go through the topics.

Before comes the syllabus, there is something to say about the question pattern. In the Exam 70 questions has to be answered in 90 minutes. There can be three major types of questions - (1.) Objective type question (only one right answer), (2.) Multiple-choice question with multiple correct answers. (3.) Questions whose answer has to be typed in. [source]

The major question categories are 12 in numbers (till date). The categories are --
  1. Php Basics
  2. Object Oriented Programming
  3. Strings and Patterns
  4. Streams and Network Programming
  5. Functions
  6. Security
  7. Databases and SQL
  8. PHP 4/5 Differences
  9. Arrays
  10. XML and Web Services
  11. Design and Theory
  12. Web Features

In the next posts, I will go through the topics, their elaborations and their study materials and my preparations about those things. The very next post will be about php basics and my preparation regarding that.
