This was my first time reading any type of technical book since I left college. I was afraid that I wouldn't get much out of this guide, but it actually delivers. Set up in an easy to follow question and answer format, this particular book is actually appropriate for honest to goodness beginners. That is important if you are someone with no experience with PHP, SQL, etc. since a LOT of so called "beginner guides" expect readers to have some sort of familiarity with the information they are supposed to be teaching.Since I desperately needed a book meant for beginners to help me with work and to customize a new blog I am happy I wasn't disappointed. So far it has helped me learn much more than I expected. As an added bonus, I was able to surprise my husband who works in network security and eats, sleeps, breathes, all things technological.
I really enjoyed the way that this book was laid out. I have taken the PHP final exam before but unfortunately did not pass. I gave up for a while but recently decided to give it another go. I tried one or two of the free books out there but nothing that was much help. Finally, I broke down and bought this book and I am glad I did. The author does a great job of breaking down each question into easy to understand lingo. It not only told me the correct answers to the question but also gave me an extremely detailed explanation of why it was the correct answer. I have been studying this book little by little over the past few days and already feel better about my skills. I would recommend it to anyone struggling with the PHP exam or job interview exam.
I found PHP 100 tests, answers and explanations while looking for a book that would help me gain the knowledge I needed to pass this test. I have tried many other books similar to this but found all to be little or no help. I was thrilled with this books layout and easy to understand methods. Not only did this book give the answers but it gave the explanation as well which I found to be extremely helpful. After studying this book I now have the confidence that I will be able to not only pass the final examination but the job interview exam as well. I will definitely be using this book to brush up on my skills in the future as well.
If you are any kind of programmer (beginner or advanced) then you'll know that there are times you need to look at a piece of code and understand why it's generating an error (or notice), or WHY it's getting that error. There are 100 tests in this book with everything from mySQL to object-oriented programming. It's a different way to learn whether you're brand new to PHP or brushing up on your skills.
As a PHP learner, I was not disappointed reading this book. This is absolute necessary PHP guide book for beginner. The book contexts are very effective, concise and easy to understand. There are very helpful multiple choice questions available with answers. I would recommend highly enough to anyone who is struggling with the PHP exam.
This book is an absolute MUST HAVE for anyone wanting to learn more about PHP coding. The author's format is very easy - multiple choice questions, with the answer AND explanation on the following page. The book is well organized and it provides an excellent learning tool. You won't get bogged down with a bunch of superfluous narrative - just clearly written, succinct, helpful information.
