Best PHP Books: My Top 5 Choices
Mar 31, 2011 @ 09:57:32

On LearnComputer.com there's a new post with their top five choices of PHP books they see as good resources for any developer wanting to improve their grasp of the language.

Continuing with our best-five-book series, today we are introducing our pick of the top 5 PHP books. Obviously, PHP has been around much longer than our other review subjects such as Android or HTML5, and there is a greater general variety of books to choose from.

Their list of top five covers a pretty good range of skillsets, but leans more towards the introductory level:

  • Professional PHP6 (and yes, they mention that the title is "blatant false advertising" since PHP6 is nowhere to be found)
  • Learning PHP, MySQL, and JavaScript: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Dynamic Websites
  • PHP Solutions: Dynamic Web Design Made Easy
  • Beginning PHP and MySQL: From Novice To Professional
  • Head First PHP & MySQL
