I'm an IT professional. Had no experience with PHP and MySQL. The video was clear and excellent in delivery. Wandschneider was a developer at Microsoft for years. He knows what he's talking about. In one night I was able to get Apache Server, PHP and MySQL running and develop some significant programming. Thank you Mark Wandschneider!

Twenty years ago I took some video classes given by the IEEE. These were delivered via satellite. So at a given time, all over the US, people interested could go to some site hosting the event, and then get a lecture on a typically abstruse topic. Unidirectional, because the lecture was prerecorded. Reviewing these livelessons on PHP and MySQL reminded me of those now distant classes. The format is essentially the same. Though perhaps more convenient here, since you have the DVDs in hand and can play and replay them at your convenience.

This video appeals to those people who have trouble studying strictly from the printed word, be it in a book or webpage. I never had any problem with the latters, but there are definitely people who need something like a human tutor to nudge things along. For you, the video can be helpful.

The 18 lessons are about half an hour each. Short and focusing on a precise topic. The accompanying book, well actually it is a slim booklet, summarises the lessons. What the booklet shows is that the lessons don't really have much in them, compared to a fully fledged book on PHP and MySQL. But those books might easily be 500 pages or more and very forbidding to some. If this is your case, then these videos are a far easier and gentler introduction. After which you can move on to more indepth texts.
