1. This is the best book I have found: PHP Objects, Patterns, and Practice, Third Edition, 2010 by Matt Zandstra

2. Then find videos on youtube for related topics.

3. Ask questions on a good forum like Stack Over Flow.

4. Read articles and tutorials like mentioned above.

6. Download a few PHP frameworks and study the classes. Monsters like the Zend Framework will give you years worth to munch on.

7. Use a framework to learn MVC (useful if you want to work with or for companies who require MVC Pattern)

8. Finally, the PHP OOP manual is an invaluable resource (sometimes). http://php.net/manual/en/language.oop5.php

Very good advices and plan to get started with OOP . The tuts examples are pretty good for beginning and start getting the idea of OOP .

Then after that you have complex (not so complex actually once we try and get how they work) but powerful OOP design patterns (Singleton, observer pattern…). Here is a link to get an idea.
