1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible book - you'll get completely stuck 27 April 2009
Format:Paperback
I'm usually a big fan of the Sams Teach Yourself books but this one seems to have been written by a retard.

Get to chapter 16 - Learning Basic SQL Commands, and you'll be stuck there forever. I happily typed in "CREATE TABLE grocery_inventory" only to get "ERROR 1046 <3D000>: No database selected". Hmmmm, what do I do? Guess I need to select a database or something? What's the command? THE BOOK DOESN'T TELL YOU!!! Went online and found the command is "USE <database_name>".

So I typed in "USE" ........ I'm stuck again. I don't have a database, the book doesn't tell you how to make one!!!! 5 minutes online and find the command is "CREATE <database_name>", so do that and then do "USE.." and I can now create my grocery inventory table.

But... how do I see all the databases I've created? You guessed it, basic commands like these are not in the book. "SHOW databases" is what you want here.

The book is littered with these kind of omissions. I cannot believe the level of incompetance from the author. You CANNOT write a beginners guide/teach yourself/dummies book like this and not have these basic commands in there at the appropriate place.

The worst teach yourself book I've ever worked through, author should be ashamed.

Back to Coldfusion then....

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful start 2 Dec 2009
By A. Moss
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having ignored the advice of other reviewers here, I bought the book and have just been going through the first few chapters. I'm about to set it on fire. The installation processes are so poorly explained that I cannot even be bothered with the rest of the book. I'll go and buy another from someone who knows how to write a 'teach yourself' book. Appalling.

1.0 out of 5 stars installation instructions are wrong 15 Oct 2009
By teatime
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I followed the installation instructions several times and they don't work. I can't really comment on the rest of the book because I can't get past the installation. I'f anybody knows how to remedy this I would be immensely greatful, the internet seems to be a mess of contradictions and bad advice (which is why i bought the book).

Format:Paperback
I bought this book as a beginner to programming, as I'd found php tricky to install. Unfortunately, whilst using the CD to install apache and sql is very straightforward, there is a fundamental error in the php section.

The book recommends you don't use the installation version of php, but rather download the zip and manually install it yourself for which it gives complicated, but presumably achievable instructions.

Here's the problem - the CD for some reason contains ONLY the direct installation file, not the zip explained in the book. And now the zip explained in the book is no longer available to download online, and the newer versions don't fit the script alterations detailed in the book.

I spent, literally DAYS trying to locate the right zip, and mash to accompanying code into a best fit with new zip files, just to install the learning environment and get started. To make matters worse the instructions are very much aimed at those with experience of scripting and include basic typos (A lowercase C in the C: drive for example, which for a beginner is quite fundamental, and vague explanations like 'install it on your windows path - if you don't know how to do this look online")

Why the CD doesn't have the zip which the book states it will I have absolutely no idea, but to me it is a fundamental error not to allow beginners to set up their learning environment with any ease. If you've bought this book and experienced the same problems as me, you can, however install the whole lot (apache, sql, php) with a single click as a wamp file. Just google wamp server.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best of the bunch 21 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is possibly the best of the bunch. Describes well the steps required to start your interactive web pages. In particular it explains the methods for connecting PHP to the MySQL database correctly. Doesn't tech you to type accurately, but the tutorials certainly help with program structure.
