A Must Have For Beginners...,
This review is from: Mastering PHP 4.1 (Paperback)I had been tinkering with PHP on and off and had found some useful websites for helping me work through my PHP problems. However... as always... it is sometimes easier to have a reference by your side. What a reference this is.
It is pricey, but these kind of books tend to be. Is it worth the money? For me, it repaid itself within two weeks. The book is well written and easy to understand. The examples were great real world examples of how PHP could enhance your website. The problems I had with my site were easily resolved by working through the book.
Typically, I use these kind of books as a reference. This time, though, I actually got to read this book as if it were a novel. I felt compelled to read it from start to finish and have subsequently found other techniques which have been included in my site.
If you are serious about learning PHP... this is a must-have.
