For intermediate to advanced ColdFusion developers, the Certified Macromedia ColdFusion MX Developer Study Guide serves one important purpose: To prepare developers to take (and pass!) the test to become certified ColdFusion MX developers. How, then, to explain the fact that more copies of the previous edition have been sold than there are certified ColdFusion developers?! Could it be that the coverage is so thorough, the topics presented in such concise, clear terms that the popular study guide has become the de facto desk reference of choice for ColdFusion pros¿ regardless of whether they plan to take the test?
Whatever the case, one thing is clear: If you need to get certified in ColdFusion MX development, this is the place to start. Written by ColdFusion product evangelist Ben Forta with input from the team that developed the exam, the study guide is organized as a series of tightly focused review sessions that follow the same subject divisions as the test itself. Each chapter of this thoroughly revised volume¿including new chapters on application security, XML, Web services, and Flash remoting¿is short and to the point with well-explained code examples. At the end of each review section are tips and sample exam questions, and a companion Web site rounds out the package. Best of all, the book includes a coupon for the exam, so if you take the test, the book is essentially free! Get this volume, and get certified¿it¿s as simple as that!
