Does anyone know of any real good web design books?  I am very solid in functional/OO programming with PHP/MySQL/Javascript but need some big help in web design, not just CSS but the whole design process too.

I recommend going through the tutorials that come with Flash to get you started then moving on to something like O'Reilly Essential ActionScript 3.0 (or an older version if you want to do AS2.0).  The O'Reilly books are best for AS because the are written in partnership with Adobe.

With regards to "PHP and MySQL Web Development, 3rd Edition" by SAMS  My friend at uni had this book, as did my previous employer, and I can see that a lot of folks in this thread recommend it.  I ordered a copy over the weekend, and it should arrive today.  My only concern is that the content may be outdated?  Is this a valid concern, or is the material still relevant today?

I'm going to have to recommend my book (in sig), mainly because I couldn't find anything out there like it, so I made it to 'fill the void'. Easy to carry around, covers the majority of commonly used functions, and always explains in plain english the 'how' of a function, with lots of useful examples.

Well, the 3rd edition covers PHP and MySQL 5 so it's still up to date.

Not that I am against PHP books (luke welling and laura thompson's book is really good) I would like to mention a Javascript book. I just started reading Pro Javascript Techniques by John Resig. This is the guy that created JQuery so he knows a ton about javascript. Its a more difficult read than some books, but worth it.

Not php related, but what would be a good c++ book for someone wanting to refresh on basic c++ stuff and learn more? 

I took a c++ class back in high school but I've since forgotten a bunch of it (not that I learned that much in a single semester).  So I know basic c++ stuff (syntax, how functions work, etc etc), now I wish to go from there and into GUI applications.  Any suggestions?

once u understand the workings of network software u will naturally know php and all other languages. What you need to do is learn about computer architecture, software engineering and programming principles and advanced networks.

I just got Software engineering a practitioners approach 6th ed by pressman it has some good working web engineering practices, before this i had software engineering 8 the student bible one i forgot what its called. The proper software engineering 8th edition is proper specific as in it goes in to the foundational details, the practitioners approach is more topological and helps working people.

A good book that I'm using for my PHP and MySQL class is called "PHP Programming with MySQL" by Don Gosselin. It doesn't seem to have many errors as I"ve been through the errata.

It's also good for teaching someone who has little to no programming experience. It also features really useful programming exercises and programming case files at the end of a chapter that make you code your own scripts based off what you learned during that chapter.

I'm not finished with it yet, but I seen no one mentioned, and I've found it good so far so I thought I would list it here.

The thing is with any teach yourself books, Ive never finished one, I seem to learn more by figuring out what I want to achieve, find the direction in which to learn then find a book to help me.

That's how I was that is, now I just like reading through majority of books to learn and build my skills.

"The Pragmatic Programmer" by Andrew Hunt and David Thomas. Only about half way through at the moment but definitely recommend it to anyone.
