It is easy to understand and the jQuery website provides all information needed.
For what concerns PHP, it depends on what your intentions are.
In any case, there are plenty of books and tutorials out there to help you.
If you intend to go serious about php, there is a book I keep as reference:

Great. Thank you for the helpful feedback. I know this may be tough to answer but what aspects of PHP would you say are the most in-demand right now? What are employers in need of the most? How can I focus on the most helpful functions of PHP? If this is possible to answer that would be great but I understand if it isn't exactly. Obviously I am a newbie to PHP. I just want to make sure I am focusing on the most important things career-wise to get my foot in the door somewhere. Thanks!
If you're going to use PHP, you're 99.9% likely going to be interacting with a database. So you also need to know SQL, along with how to use PHP to interact with DBMS's (e.g. the MySQLi, PostgreSQL, and PDO extensions, to name probably the most common).
To be competitive in today's market, you also need a good grasp of object-oriented programming principles and the specifics of using OOP in PHP. (I recommend Matt Zandstra's PHP 5 Objects, Patterns, and Practice.
