I passed the Zend Certified Engineer 5.3 (200-530) exam today, but first I am going to give all the credit to the good Lord Jesus Christ. Without his help I would not have passed. I’m not kidding. I would also like to thank my wife Carol, who has been so very supportive in my efforts to take this exam. She is one in a million. So, I have no idea how I passed it as it was the most difficult exam I’ve ever had to take. Its not that it was all that complex, but there was so dang much material to remember… Perhaps if I had had some professional experience with web development using PHP prior to taking the exam it would have been a little bit easier, but I’m not going to make any bones about it. I’m one happy guy today, and I’ll take my certification thank you very much.
