Haim Michael has put together a "PHP Fundamentals" class that aims to cover most of the information one might need to take the Zend Certified Engineer certification.
I am glad to announce about "PHP Fundamentals", a new course I have developed few months ago and recently completed to refine its slides and assignments. This course is available for free at www.abelski.com. This new course overviews the basic topics in PHP and reflects a practical approach for learning this language.
This post to his blog includes the PDF files for each of the sections in the course - everything from the "PHP Basics" out to "Exception Handling" and "The Standard PHP Library".
