Personally I find the way the vB2 code is currently written far easier to read than all your examples of how to do it "correctly", but thats just me. I tend to be quite picky about how I lay my code out and do it in the way that I find easiest to read myself.

Core PHP 2nd Edition by Leon Atkison

Anything that claims you can learn a language in 24 hours lies.

Mastering MySQL 4 by Ian Gilfillan is what i've been using to read up on the new mysql 4 features and is a good reference for functions.

Are both of these books good for novices that are just learning PHP?

Core PHP is excellent for novices, its the book i used to learn PHP and I still use it from time to time to check out some of the wierd functions. Though its probably a bit out of date function wise now.

What would you recommend getting now, especially with the coding for vb3 being so different?

I hate the InEasySteps books, they're no where near in depth enough, www.wrox.com >> get Beginning PHP 4, I have it, superbly in depth and informative with excellent examples...

I sound like a salesman, don't i?



I do?





I've succeeded then

Books never helped me, I need to visualize. I have found that having someone hold a gun to your head, is a good way to qucikly figure out how things work.

I second www.wrox.com
