Where Do I Go From Here?

Recommended Posts

My question is kinda-sorta related to this book. I have it and I've used it so much that it is coming apart. But, my new web hosting servers are using Php 5 and MySQL 5 and I'm finding that some of the code I'm using isn't working right, when they did in Php 4 and MySQL 3, etc. Plus, when I go to PHP forums and ask a question I get chewed out for not using mysqli.


In the back of this book in chapter 14 it uses mysqli, but there is no example of it being used in an update query. I know that I should be able to put 2 and 2 together and figure it out, but it works better for me to actually see it in action.


Anyway, what book should I get next to learn mysqli in detail? I saw this:

PHP 5 Advanced: Visual QuickPro Guide (2nd Edition)


What do you think? I have other books (non Larry books) but I like Larry's coding style and would like to stuck with it. A finger point in the right direction would be great.

Well its simple just buy the 4th Edition of Larry's PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites book this cover mysqli.




You can get the PHP Advanced and Object-Orientated Programming Third Edition afterwards if you want to learn more:




There is actually a cool amazon js widget of Larry's latest edition books at the top right hand corner of the screen.
