Hard to follow,
This review is from: PHP 5: Your visual blueprint for creating open source, server-side content (Paperback)
I learned ASP and Mysql with great ease and quick progress with 'the visual blueprint' books, the delivery were clear and concise.
But things have changed in this new series. The writing style is difficult to understand: instead of explaining the topic first, the writer jumps right into 'you can do this and that'. I have to read each chapter several times in order to grasp what he means. The screen shots are now arranged on top of one another. Which is by itself ok if the text are not reduced even smaller making it more difficult to read.
I am quite disappointed by this 'new' approach. I hope the publisher has not changed the 'your visual blueprint series' into
just a reference book instead of being a teaching book which it was so good at.
