He provided the following feedback that we are more than happy to share:

Zend offers an online training course, I felt it quite expensive, I’d like to recommend the alternative online course provided by uCertify, now I am halfway in the preparation and found it is a value of money, the course built up my PHP knowledge and confidence along the way.

While I am using uCertify Zend online course, I have below observations,

While I am using uCertify Zend online course, I have below observations,

  1. Before you start the course, you can have a Pre-Assessment to identify your readiness for the exam, weakest area, where do you need to improve.
  2. There are 20 chapters, now I am studying chapter 10, the structure of the content is well organized, it is an interactive e-book, with the video embedded, and by selecting the text, you can do the annotation, google search, etc. You can even test the PHP code by click the “try it yourself” button.
  3. At the end of each chapter book, there will be flashcard study to strengthen your important knowledge points, there will be a quiz and exercise to test your study results. the question in the test includes multiple choices, blank filling, drag and drop questions etc.

4.Study Planner: Based on platform usage, an exam readiness score is determined. A score of 100% is ideal. A score over 90% earns you a certificate of completion from uCertify. Now I am 22%, a long way to go,


5. There is also the Test History & Performance Analytic, all the testing and exercise history was recorded, you can review it anytime, and you can retake the test, and furthermore, you can select to re-test the wrong questions only. This really helps you to practice and redress your weakest points.

6. There is more than 3 full-length test for simulation for the real exam, haven’t tried this, will wait for until I finished the last chapter to use to test my readiness for the real exam.Will continue to  study on this course, I believe I will be ready for the Zend PHP 5.5 exam once I complete this online course.”

We are working on all the areas of improvement mentioned by him to provide a better user experience. You can read out the complete post here and know more about Mr. Xiong Hui Lin by visiting his LinkedIn profile.

I would like to recommend uCertify and their services. I have been a CTO at a few companies, currently working as a PHP Leader Developer after using their  PHP5.3 ZCE PrepKit.

This product is absolutely perfect. I tested many kinds of software from other companies and I want to say that this is my favorite one. Also, their support is amazing – they responded to my questions in a very short time and answered them with just one email message exchange.

If you wish to get good service and a good test prep product, this is the company I’d recommend. I have recommend them to all my colleagues and partners and they agree with me : )
