أستغرق مني قراءة هذا الكتاب قراءة مركزة شهرين متتابعين بمعدل ثلاث ساعات يومياً .. بدأت بقراءة هذا الكتاب من خلال نسخة إلكترونية عرفت من خلالها أهمية الكتاب وضرورة أن تكون لي منه نسخة ورقية. الكتاب مقسم إلى جزئين، الصفحات الزوجية تحتوي على الشروحات النصية والصفحات الفردية تحتوي على الأمثلة وعلى ملخص الصفحة، لذا فإن قراءته مريحة والمراجعة من خلاله سريعة أيضاً .. من عيوب الكتاب وهو كامل متكامل فيما عداها أن تمارين نهايات الفصول بعضها ضعيف وهي تبدوا ألغازاً أكثر من كونها محفزة لممارسة مادة الفصل في ...more

I am a bit surprised by all of the positive reviews for this book. Maybe it is just written in a way that does not work for my learning style, but I am not finding it to be a good teaching aid at all.

Used this book for my PHP class and it was so helpful and relatively easy to understand for a programming book. Secret side note: if you get stuck on something, you can go onto the publisher's website, and go to the downloads part of the page about the book, and there'll bee a free downloads tab. When you download the assignments and book exercises, it also gives the solutions for the main assignments and the end of each chapter.

A great book which is applicable for every one from begineers to advanced. It has everything for everyone. The best part is that MVC is discussed in a begineer point of view, which is an essence if you want to dive futher into frameworks. just go for it.
