Excellent & Accessible Guide to PHP and MySQL
on 21 July 2002
Having had some prior experience of ASP programming and MS Database technologies, this text was my first introdction to the world of PHP and MySQL. It is well written and introduces you to the basic concepts of both PHP and MySQL in an accessible conversational style. As you progress through the text, you are gradually introduced to more complex applications through meaningful real world examples. It even has the comfort blanket of an accompanying CD-ROM with all the code! As well as a step-by-step guide, it is well indexed and will become an invaluable reference manual. I would have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone with a little prior knowledge in programming, looking to gain a quick and practcial awareness of PHP and MySQL. I am now looking for other titles by these authors to find out what else I can teach myself quickly!
