"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can pretty much find all the tuts you need at http://net.tutsplus.com/
Sometimes it can take a coupla read throughs for it to all sink in - some of the tutorials are not a colour by numbers format.

As for paid, well never used them as you can always find the same thing online for free.

Things specific to the transition from the familiar but obsolete MySQL extension, to the new and supported MySQLi and PDO are treated in detail here:

And if you want a good learning resource for jQuery, this book is pretty good.  I have Edition One and will buy Edition Two shortly.
