Note: This blog post is from 2008. Some content may be outdated--though not necessarily. Same with links and subsequent comments from myself or others. Corrections are welcome, in the comments. And I may revise the content as necessary.As some may know, I keep a list of over 700 tools and resources of interest to CFers, broken into more than 100 categories. I've decided to start offering each category here as a blog entry. To see the list of all categories, see Part 1 of this series.
Today I'll jump from the tools section of the list back to the resources section. This entry is about CFML Certification Preparation Resources.
I'd like to ask that we don't use this blog entry as a place to reopen up the old debate about the value of certification. I'm just point out resources, not judging the value of certs (or the resources). Please fight the urge... (I'm betting someone with a short attention span will have skipped this text and will do it anyway.)
CFML Certification Preparation Resources
The tools mentioned here are still only oriented toward CF 7, so if you're looking for CF8-specific information, the best bet is the CFML documentation.
- Adobe ColdFusion Certification site (including exam guidelines, example questions, and information on registering to take the exams)
- CFMX ExamBuster, commercial by inexpensive, from Centrasoft. The leading product in the space of CFML exam preparation.
- ColdFusion MX 7 Certified Developer Study Guide, by Ben Forta
- ColdFusion Certification Resources, by Ben Nadel
- ColdFusion Questions, by Charlie Griefer
- Learn by Heart CF Exam Practice
- I welcome additions/corrections/feedback.
This tools/resources list is a perpetual work in progress. I definitely welcome additions or corrections to it. If you have any to offer, you can leave them here as a comment on this blog entry and I'll move them to the list on my site.
BTW, before you offer an update here, please do check the category on the real list. I won't be coming back here to update these blog entries to sync them if I add new items to the real list.
About this series
This entry is part of an ongoing series, sharing each of the 100+ categories and the tools and resources I (and others) have identified. They're designed to answer the questions we hear, like , "does anyone know of tools or resources to help with ...?"
Someone may ask why I'm blogging each of these categories, when they're available online anyway. It's just that, through aggregation and feeds, blogs present a way to reach a wider (and new) audience who may not otherwise come across the list of tools and resources. This also widens the pool of eyes for possible updates to the list. I want it to be as accurate and up to date as possible. I may in the future offer an RSS feed of any updates made to the list.
Otherwise, I hope people will get great value out of the lists, here or on the tools and resources page.
