    Multiple-guess quiz?

    Hi.

    I'm learning PHP (newbie).

    The best way to learn is usually by applying skills to a real project.

    I've thought about creating a multiple-guess quiz, sorta like what they have at W3Schools:

    http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_quiz.asp

    http://www.w3schools.com/quiztest/qu....asp?qtest=PHP

    (Tho not for PHP-related questions.)

    Some questions:

    1. Would this be a good PHP exercise?

    2. Are there similar scripts already out there that I could either use (fill in the blanks) or use as reference if I get stuck?

    3. Is this something PHP is well-suited for?

    4. Any comments from experienced coders welcome.

    I always enjoy quizes like these cuz I learn from them.

    TIA.

    1. depending on your definition of "good", at least it’s suited for beginners.

    2. there should be scripts out there, since that is basic Form Processing. though I don’t know, if you can use it as reference, that’s what the Manual is good at.

    3. yes. (imagine the stuff you heard that is using PHP …)

    4. /* PHP works best with valid HTML */
