Almost everything on the test was related to experiences I had come
across in my years of PHP programming.

I used http://phpcertguide.com/ to test myself and see how much I could
get correct.

I then did the same with:
http://www.zend.com/store/books/inde...ation_Practice

To top it off, my employer signed me up for:
http://www.zend.com/store/education/...#Certification

The training session thing didn't teach me anything new, and I actually
spent a lot of the time answering questions that others had, so I could
have done without it.

Overall, if you've had wide experience with the different aspects of PHP
and can get through the two books above, you shouldn't really have many
problems on the exam. Even though you'll hear people complaining about
different examples questions all over the net, understand all of them -
even the "bad" ones.

The certification tests your knowledge of the language, programming
practices in general (debugging, etc.) and some PHP implementations.
