I am learning too. Best way to learn better is write code and keep breaking stuff. You'll reach a point when you start creating things rather than breaking, only if you understand how things work. Watch video tutorials, write code, read tutorials. :)
I suggest taking codecademy tutorial before you go ahead with php.
for me http://www.w3schools.com/ is the best! specially for starter, provides basic and simple example that is easy to understand
i definitely agree with your suggestion vaultdweller123, actually we're just the same, i'm trying to familiarize myself in PHP .. so http://w3schools.com will help you a lot, it provides basic and easy to understand examples and also it also provide CSS and PHP tutorial,if you need other examples you might wanna check http://php.net, don't worry Google is your friend.. try searching topics and voila! you'll have it! Good luck mate! Cheers!
