    Not for beginners. Confusing.
    This book is not for beginners, and it is absolutely not for “absolute” beginners. It’s badly written and jump for one subject to another. It doesn’t make sense whatsoever.

    Save your money, mine is going back!
    As always, another book for beginners that makes no sense. If you are like me trying to learn PHP/MySQL it looks like the NET is the way to go.

    Good but not great- it has unusable code
    This book has been good for several things- teaching basic code, reusing snippets of scripts- but in Chaper 6- Working with Files, I haven’t been able to get the code to work…

  5. 3.0 out of 5 stars
    Good, but doesn’t help much designing the actual page.
    Good, but doesn’t help much designing the actual page. I was hoping to learn to make the actual design of a page, but its mostly all about scripts.
