    I second this! This book is very well written and covers a lot. And I 100% agree about the confidence thing.
    When I walk away having read a tutorial, I always feel uneasy that I'm not getting the entire picture or I've missed something - with a book that size, you know you're learning everything you need to. :)

    There isn't anything, in any book, that isn't available online, period. (jeez... its 2010 - welcome to the internet... think of the tree's.... etc etc :p) Of course; everything you need is at http://www.php.net

    Then again, programming isnt just about syntax. To be any good at it, you need to be the right type of thinker. (analytical/logical thinker). Thats not to say you cant code in PHP, far from it...... just that if you are thinking of a programming/dev career, you are better spent focussing on the generic programming basics and how to solve problems (think:puzzles) as opposed to syntax.

    If you're a true beginner to programming, not just PHP, and you want to learn the principles, you might consider a book called Learning Processing A Beginner's Guide to Programming Images, Animation, and Interaction by Daniel Shiffman. Processing is Java. This guy teaches a class in New York. You down load a very simple framework compiler you write the books tutorial programs with and test them. This helped me understand better the purpose of functions, objects and classes.

    Personally I think buying books which teach you the general/basics of programming than buying the book of the language you want to learn is a waste of time. PHP is a very basic language, it's the next best programming language to learn after HTML besides JavaScript.

    Hi, Here I In introduce some point about that is,
    it is a server side scripting language
    , which does not run on a simple web browser, but it run on server, before writing some code you must install some special software like for window WAMP [window+Apache +MySql+PHP], for Linux LAMP [Linux+Apache +MySql+PHP].
    And i also suggest you that you must cover all basic About Client Side Scripting Language [HTML, CSS, Java Script] etc.
    
    and here i mention some basic code for php
    <?php
    $name = "Om Sai Ram";
    echo $name;
    ?>
    and for getting all useful info visit w3schools.com, and after that if you have any little bit doubt then just mention here I'll try to solve them

    Just like every programming language without dedication and research, you won't succeed :\

    simple...

    Step 1) Watch PHP videos from Lynda.com
    Step 2) Read O'reillys PHP book
    Step 3) Start practicing by buiding code snippets.

    thats all... :)

    Download the WAMP server and install it on your local machine. You can quickly write and run php without needing an external server. You can quickly make changes and see the results instantly. Make sure you have all error reporting on. This will help you debug your code.

    Start by doing. I suggest starting with some basic PHP forms since a large part of PHP is transferring POST variables and GET variables across pages.

    sunnykwok25 is right! google for some basic tutorials and do them. Videos will be pointless. Install a php vm on your computer and get to it mucking about.

    You also need to have some goals. Do you want to work with frameworks like Symfony and cakePHP or do you just want to be able to edit WordPress themes and plugins. Without knowing what you want to do we can't help you attain the appropriate level of expertise.
