Zend have started out with PHP certification for a whopping $200

I was just curious .. that is there anybody there to try it out... Not me atleast..
First I'mnot interested in certification, secondly I think $200 is a quite high ask for PHP...

$200 is cheap for a certification. And looks good to clients.

CompTIA A+ is like $185 or something. and that just says you've been a tech for 6months

MS cert is like $700+

CCNE is up there too.

You can always try to make it tax-deductable at least or have your company pay for it...

Im thinking about certifing..
$200 is money buy it really nothing in comparison to every other certificate.

I think its a really good idea to certify plus it DOES look good to clients..
Ive been asked by a client for any certification paper and i dindt have any. I almost lost that client. Thank god i was recommended to him and plus had several recommendation letters with me.

So thats y i bought today Zend PHP Certification Study Guide. The LAST ONE in store :S
