    I learned using a couple of books. Full of examples and real world projects.

    Welling and Thomson one

    SAMS Teach Yourself one

    The top one is light years better imo though.

    Online references:

    Can do no worse than the official sites php.net and mysql.com/. Both are searchable (top right) and info is straight from the horses mouth.

    The discussions on php.net per function are really interesting too.

    Google it first, best way is to have a project. How about setup a helpdesk?? Liberum is free?

    Just reading through threads doesn't always stick, if you have a goal - then hopefully your keep working at your project until you achieve your goal!

    I've always found practical experience is the way to learn for me, reading books just isn't enoguh!

    Watched about a third of them so far. They seem really good! The examples are all really well chosen and it's much nicer being able to sit and watch it than having to read through a book and try and run through the examples yourself at the same time.

    One thing I couldn't see on the site is do you get to download the pay-to-view lessons if you buy them or do you still have to view them directly on the site?
