Hey all

I'm looking for some intermediate-level help with OOP. I've read many many
intro level articles on OOP, but now I'm looking for something more
in-depth. I'm currently working on a project that is far more advanced
than the articles I've seen. I'm happy to read books or articles or
whatever. Maybe a first year comp-sci text book?

The project I'm working on is an online quiz editor. I have a Quiz object,
a Part object and a Question object. I'm trying to understand which
functions should go in which parts. I had everything figured out nicely
but in reality it's *slow* because of the choices that I've made. (e.g.
questions are always pulled one at a time from the database because of the
way the Question object was designed -- nice in principle, AWFUL in

Any suggestions for resources would be much appreciated. I don't mind what
programming language they're written for as long as they're generic
enough to be applied to other languages. Right now I'm fluent in PHP (what
this project is done in), Perl, Javascript and MOO.
