    Hey

    How about a tickle to see how your PHP skills really are? xD

    Got this in some other forum. A good quiz to test yourself.
    Code:
    http://w3schools.com/quiztest/quiztest.asp?qtest=PHP
    My result isn't too bad(See attached screenshot). What's yours?

    No cheating!

    Now the situation is like this:

    I don't have any knowledge of programming. Do you suggest me to learn something else before starting with php?

    So I can start cold? Without any knowledge? And how long will it take me if I learn für 3-4 hours a day until I can do some serious coding?

    If you want to make websites start with HTML then learn PHP(+ MySQL).
    If you want to make good looking sites, add css and javascript/jquery/ajax to the list.

    This quiz is fairly easy and can't really test your skills. However it is good for beginners to check out their level

    @OP, after completing the quiz on left there's "check answers" to see which one you did wrong on

    I took this test a while back as I was actually doing a test at college about PHP
    If I remember correctly I scored 17, so thinking I was a smart arse, I decided
    to try another one that was title "PHP Quiz For Kids", I got 5 out of 20, I have no
    idea who these kids where, but they must have been the offspring off Einstein :D

    lol that was a nice one...

    well, most Quiz test your general knowledge on the subject and how good you know the theory/docs, not your actual skills. The skills themselves can only be tested by requiring you to write a program code

    Well done the test again and ...... no improvement, still make the same bloody mistakes
    I have come to the conclusion you are either have a programming mentality or you dont
    I takes me a good 30 mins to get my brain in gear when it comes to PHP.

    On a side note W3 schools is a superb site for learning a variety of web skills.

    Bleh.

    14. PHP allows you to send emails directly from a script

    Does php allow you send emails from a script? Of course it does. So the proper way to format this sentence would be "14. PHP allows you to send emails from a script".

    But it doesn't say that. It has "directly" in there as well. Since the sentence would work without "directly", its implied that the word is there for a purpose, i.e. not just sending it, but directly sending it.

    Does the script itself DIRECTLY send email? No, it doesn't. In fact, if you haven't configured an outgoing email server (the next step, not part of the "script", and before email is actually sent), the script won't do anything at all but return an error.

    That test just reminded me why college is a waste of time, half the questions had nothing to do with real world PHP programming.
