General Track Strategy

Hi all,

I wanted to get some input from those who have finished the PHP Track. Is the first phase (Project: Build a Simple Website) just the introductory or should I learn everything taught in this lesson in major detail? I've toyed around w/ building a website on my own, but I did not know how far I needed to take it before moving on to the next phase.

I think it depends how comfortable you feel. I followed along in the Build a Simple Website and it was useful, but I wouldn't say I've memorized everything. I've moved on and use the videos and PHP site as a reference.

The lessons in the Build a Simple Website project (which I watched all of) are pretty well labeled. If you get stuck in PHP, it should be pretty easy to find the info that you need.
