Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PHP and MySQL Web Development, 3rd Edition (Paperback)
"PHP and MySQL Web Development, 3rd Edition" is a a beast of a book, weighing in at a hefty 960 pages and covering everything from the very basics to database design & creation, web services, security and XML and beyond.
It's thoughtfully written, with many code examples and very well designed and explains everything you need to know in detail.
A fantastic learning aid and a great reference tool too. It includes a CD-ROM which contains all the code examples as well as a PDF of the entire book. It's sometimes useful to have the PDF open on the side of the screen and learn by editing and creating code in your favourite code editor at the same time.
Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in learning PHP.
