Well, I have read a lot about php. I bought a lot of ebooks online. Thinking of reading yours as well. I'll be providing you a honest review - so that others who are thinking of buying it will know - whether it could benefit them?
Well, if this a good one then -
1- It should explain things which will make them do php programming on their own
2- Make them solve algorithms (needs high skills ..will take some time though)
3- Detailed explanation of the various functions that we'll have to use while designing stunning websites..
4- Also if it explains about web 2.0 and such things...then a real bonus !!!
Anyways, I'll be providing a honest review if you are ready to give me a chance ( yup, no worries even if you are not willing to give me one - since you already gave 2 )
I am somebody who really does not know any PHP. I have been able to do simple if...else and include statements, but that's it. Not only that, but I had absolutely NO clue how MySQL and PHP actually worked along together.
This eBook is perfect for anybody who does not know ANY PHP. Of course I recommend HTML knowledge, but that's true for almost anything. The book starts off with the history of PHP, and at step 1: how to use the <?php and ?> tags. It works from the Echo statement to Functions down to MySQL connections.
Coming from somebody who knew almost no PHP before reading this, I am practicing making log-in forms with simple MySQL connections.
My only suggestion for this book is to go into more detail about the PHP Mail() function. The book tells you how to make a form and have the content get spit back at you, but it doesn't actually tell you how to email the form, and a contact form is something I've been desperately trying to make in the last 4 months (failing all of the times).
I give this book an 8/10 and definitely recommend it to anybody who wants to start learning PHP. I will also make sure to check out the resources given at the end of the eBook.
