I don't recommend W3 to be honest. Some of their tutorials are utter crap, badly worded (and thus confusing) and I still don't understand why they are so highly rated along with their imaginary qualifications
Tizag explains things much better if you ask me. Google is also rock solid for finding snippets of code and when you need to lookup what a function does, the parameters it uses etc, the php manual (and user comments for each function) is excellent (although it seems daunting at first).
