I'm sorry, but after going through just the first couple chapters in Book II, I've already encountered many mistakes in the reading.

GREAT book!! Perfect for beginners, but still good enough for somewhat experienced users.

I had my site up and running with loads of php scripts, mysql query's etc. in just a week after I got this book, complete with log-in pages, registration, and other fancy bells and whistles.

After this, I got a couple other books for more advanced coverage, but still find myself turning back to this book quite frequently.

highly recommended for anyone looking to learn php.

I'm sorry, but after going through just the first couple chapters in Book II, I've already encountered many mistakes in the reading. I enjoyed the Java book I read by this publisher, but this one clearly wasn't proofread or something because there is misleading text, and coding that might confuse anyone brand new to programming.

Luckily, I only checked this out from my school library because I would have been quite disappointed if I spent money on this book to only find it with many mistakes in the first couple days of my reading.

Others might want to explore more options when trying to learn php because when I start concentrating more on where the errors are in the book, then I get side-tracked into actually learning the language because I'm all hung up on these errors.

I am new to PHP programming and I like the way the book explains the good stuff and the bad stuff and even shows examples of both typs and explains what really happens.

Format: Paperback
This is a very well written reference on PHP and MySQL. The book includes a 6 in 1 desk reference, which doesn't allow for the minute detail that is contained in some other "for Dummies" editions. But, it is a good additional to a PHP library nonetheless.

The explanations are clear and easy to understand. The sample code is fully documented to allow the reader to fully understand the script and how it works.

Very understandable and helpful - the only drawback is the lack of DATA for the MySQL examples. The examples need data to function, but I find it a 'pita' to create data while you are analysing the code.
