Add-On Training Guides

Drupal Users Guide author Emma Jane Hogbin, has also developed several additional training guides that support and build on her manual. Using a project-based approach, Emma’s guides help trainers walk through creating amazing Drupal Web sites and convert designs into flexible themes.

Extended training workbooks

The basic form of these workbooks are already included in Drupal User's Guide. If you own a copy of that book, you already have the basics of these sites; however, the extended training workbooks build on what you've already learned to take you even further with your Drupal skills. Each workbook extends the site in a different way. Interested in learning how to program in PHP? You'll want to buy the Community Site extended workbook.
