I am new to learning PHP, at the moment I am just going through some tutorials however I find I am just learning syntaxes and functions and need something a bit more structured which actually takes you through the process of using php with real examples.
I was given the book Build your own database driven website using PHP and MYSQL, I haven’t started it yet but it looks like it might be more what I am looking for.
I have a question though. I have been given the second edition, I know the latest edition is number 4. So I am wondering what are the major differences between the two?
Should I just go ahead and start with the second edition or would it I be missing anything vital that has been added to the latest one?
Any help would be appreciated.
