Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm preparing for the Zend PHP 5.3 certification and I have bought all 3 of Larrys books on PHP (PHP for web, PHP & MySQL and Advanced PHP). Can anyone here suggest if it would be better to start with the PHP for web book ? Or should I skip and move to PHP & MySQL book directly ? Should I use any other training material besides these books ?

 

Thanks

I bought the first 2 books, PHP for the Web and PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Websites, and I have looked through both. I have watched a lot of PHP tutorials online that explained the basics, but I had forgotten some of it.

 

I decided to start with the PHP for the Web book because it goes more in depth with the actual PHP code. PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Websites goes over PHP a little, but not nearly as in depth as it is focused on more using PHP with MySQL. If you have the book PHP for the Web I would recommend that you start with that one then move on. That is what I am going to do.

Nice to know. I don't know how long it will take me but I'm particularly interested in covering some of the regex stuff. Don't know if that's covered in either of these books because I'm looking at the table of contents.
