I love jQuery but I would recommend you get a decent understanding of native JavaScript before you move on. As a scripting language, it’s got some differences from PHP (obviously since one is mostly for client side stuff and the other is more server side) but many of the dynamics (loops, functions) are there. If you’ve never done any of that kind of programming before, it’s a good start. You’ll also gain a better understanding as to why jQuery is so awesome, but you’ll also know how to do something in JS if say, you cannot use jQuery on a project (not lying -I’ve worked for places that are adamantly against using jQuery or any other JS libraries)
