Hi there:

I suggest this path:

  1. Object oriented php basics
  2. Extending object oriented php (optional, because you can always do it later)
  3. SQL Basics
  4. Reporting with SQL more Database courses
  5. PHP & Databases with PDO
  6. Integrating PHP with Databases
  7. CRUD Operations with PHP

I as you can see I am not suggesting you any of the two tracks, because when I took them I realize I was missing some other contents in order to fully understand each course. I think with the path above you'll be getting what you need or at least you won't be missing any big chapter. Ciao.

Thanks a lot for listing the shortcut for me but since I already completed 3 hours and don't want to do anything sloppily and hastily, I guess I'll rely on the default guide which is INTERMEDIATE PHP TRACK + OBJECT ORIENTED PHP TRACK in that order. This list can be more helpful for anyone else.
