To be honest, the Mysql website is pretty much the best source of documentation that you are going to find. I have "MySql Reference Manual", and I find it quicker to use the website than to look through the book. However, if you are trying to learn the basics of structured query language, then there are any number of websites that can teach you.

As far as php. php.net has been often recommended.

Php.net has all the information you will need, but to reach the expert level you will have to be well versed in the ways of object oriented programming. If you already understand OOP concepts and are just learning a new language php.net will suffice, if you don't know much about OOP and want to become an expert php coder I suggest you look into OOP books/online tutorials or possibly take a class.

saw it for over 30$ on B&N, then saw it for about the same at BORDERS, but looked on ebay for a used copy, found one +S&H for total of 13$, I might buy it, thanks grinler.
