The format of a virtual self-study group is as follows:
- Each participant purchases the same textbook: PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites.
- Each participant commits to read one chapter per week, complete the exercises and post links to your completed work.
- Each participant obtains assistance by posting questions to a discussion area set up on the Boston PHP Message Board for each chapter.
- Each participant who completes the book is recognized on the Self-Study Group | Wall of Accomplishment.
