    As of now, I'm really determined to learn PHP.

    All you need is the official source: http://www.php.net/

    The documentation on there has everything you need to know.

    There is a site www.lynda.com - which has a catalog of dozens of video based tutorials for various things. It does cost though.

    If you are like me and don't like reading try this site. It did wonders in getting me started.

    http://www.phpvideotutorials.com/

    I liked it because when i first started php i found reading books was to technical and hard to learn. This site gave me the basics so now when i acquire new knowledge i understand the books much better.

    This could be a sign that you don't have a "programming mind". Not everyone will enjoy programming, which would be a great stumbling block to get past what the books teach you.

    @aedrin, don't forget, English is not native language for everyone here, and listening to someone is much easier than reading a bunch of text that is most of the time hard to understand. Trust me it's way harder then listening (at least for me)

    I've only been speaking English for about 4 years.

    Hmm I'm not sure about that. I was never interested in programming until I was 21. Before all I cared about was computer games. All you need it a change to your mental DNA and your hooked on programming.

    But you do a fair bit of reading now that you're programming, don't you?

    yes and no. I prefer to work with code and mess around with it, then go and learn from the book what I don't understand. However with MySQL I did all my learning from the book.
