    Great Book Terrible Options

    This text is a great beginners guide to PHP. I wish they would sell the ebook and not just do rentals.

    Not for the beginner or the expert!

    I found myself spending hours and hours only getting through 20-30 pages of useless typing exercises learning next to nothing. Don't waste your time with this one.
