Hi all,

I do not know if this type of questions can be asked in the forums here. I thought I might get some help here.

I wanted to learn programming in C++, just wanted to know a good book to learn it.

Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

Although you´ve already been pointed to some of the best books, if I had to start from scratch, I´d pick Beginning C++ Through Game Programming. No second thoughts ... I have the first edition and found it to be an outstanding little book.

After that, I´d probably go with Programming -- Principles and Practice Using C++ and by all means The C++ Standard Library - A Tutorial and Reference.

Yet it all depends on "how you better learn" ... no matter how good a book is for most people, it may be useless to you ...

Good luck on your C++ learning! :)

I can mention two books that did NOT do a good for me:
"Problem Solving with C++ - The Object of Programming"
"Data Structures and Other objects Using C++"
Both by Walter Savitch.

Your learning style will determine what kind of book you should get. For me, I like to have practical examples rather than theory...I'm more of a "learn by doing" person. Others learn best from theory, formulas, and description of technique. It just depends on what kind of person you are.
