    "Build Your Own Database Driven Website Using PHP & MySQL" by Kevin Yank is probably a good one to start with.

    How to build a database driven website - By Kevin Yank is a book I would highly recommend to learn with as this is what I use as my point of reference. This book is very resourceful and also directs you to other points of references as well.

    Looking for a good book with exercises
    As highly recommended as the above resource is, could make a suggestion, try to think of your own exercise to do as you are learning. Think of a project that you would like to complete yourself that differs from the the exercises listed in the books.

    I found that by creating my own project as I was learning, I had utilised the references within the books, but I felt I became more involved in learning as I was building something I wanted. And when I had completed a task contained within the book, it felt very rewarding as I knew I built the project myself. You can easily copy the exercises in the book and KNOW that they are going to work because it works in the book, but when you are developing your own project, you learn from the tutorial, but if you project doesn't work, you will learn more when you try to fix the error that has occurred. It gives you a greater UNDERSTANDING of PHP not just KNOWING
    Regards,

    What have you been looking for spacejoker?

    If it is the book that we have listed above, then just click on the link
    How to build a database driven website - By Kevin Yank

    This is certainly no form affiliated sales, I just believe in the product that is being sold.

    Hi,
    You can refer to www.w3schools.com and www.php.net .
    For manual you can download php manual, mysql manual.
    Read those. Do code as much as you can, face more problems.
    Try to solve those. One day you will be familier with all the problems
    and it is what you really learned than just reading books.
