Hi JX

The tut just explains a few procedures, dates etc. Our manual is the main document, of which I neither do have an electronic copy, and even if I did would not be allowed to distribute freely sad smiley Have you been to the CENSE page for PHP?

So it is working through the manual and exercises (and accompanying sections in the prescribed handbook) while actively participating inthe forums, then a final project where you develop a web-application (and example would be say an online Comrades Marathon Runner Registration System) which takes it all together and counts as your exam mark.

Hope that helps.

what I'm more interested in is when we finish with this short cos is any way that we can get to advance stage with PHP or should we consider or venture to aspx ,ajax, jsp and etc?

I had actually meant to find out, isn't ASP a direct substitution of PHP????

No, ASP is not PHP. PHP is its own creation. In future we will present an advanced course. After this course you should be comfortable in learning the advanced stuff yourself.

But it does pretty much the same functions PHP does... (server side scripting)

Of course there are things that are the same. PHP, as a programming language, has many function that is similar to other programming functions.
