the codeigniter books - El Forum - 12-22-2009

I am muchly a newbie programmer, who was in fact trained for two years in OOP but I never worked in the feild.

I've started learning codeigniter (and php for that matter), and am wondering if these two codeigniter books are considered good learning sources.

book 1: http://www.packtpub.com/article/improve-your-php-coding-productivity-with-new-codeIgniter-book

book 2: http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTitle/Professional-CodeIgniter.productCd-0470282452.html

Thank you.

I advise to read the 2nd book (from Wrox). The book is based on an idea of doing a real project ("an on-line shop") using the agile methodology. The book is more about CI than PHP.
