    Hiii :)
    Which is the best book on PHP & Mysql(not any Online tutorial or e-books) that I can purchase offline from a bookstore.I have only basic knowledge of C programming.
    Also,what is the best book on HTML(I mean Offline resources & not e-books)?
    I have searched the forum but could not find a exact answer to my questions.So I post this here.
    If anyone kindly guide me I will be greatly obliged.
    Thanks in advance.

    I am not sure but when I am looking to start on PHP I found it useful. I always have the script to start with and its always the case that I need to Trouble Shoot and so I like the book.

    The best thing I consider is the PHP manual available at http://php.net

    Sir,
    Thank you for your advice.
    But one last clarification-I have read in the amazon.com reviews that the book has many errors in its codes and materials...is it true? :rolleyes:

    Now I have not run and debug all its codes and if you find anything that should be a challenge to solve it. I normally use any programming language book as an handbook and nothing more than that. Programming cannot be learned by reading but by doing it.
