    I'm reading the book currently, and I think the book is brilliant. Since you're already familiar with C++ it shouldn't be too difficult to understand. However, it seems that the book is mainly targeted for people who have a moderate grasp of the language.

    Btw, why don't you get the Special Edition instead?

    I said that because stroustrup wrote it, And he's the father of
    C++, So i trust on it he know what he's talking about.

    Well, It's said that MSVC++ is bad for beginners, But i started
    it and had no trouble. Dev++ Supposed to be good for beginners,
    no fancy ####.

    I like the c++ complete reference, and do as many programming excersises as you can if you really want to grasp the concepts.

    The book of Stroustrup is great, it is hard, but there is nothing bad with that. It just means that reading the book will go a bit slower than reading an easy book on C++. But I think you get a better understanding of C++ during reading this book.

    Stroustrups coding style is out of date. I would advise the use of the Allman format. I think the book can be a little esoteric.

    What do you mean with out of date? Too old? Compiler used too
    old?

    >>> What do you mean with out of date?

    I'm talking about the way he formats his code. You can use whatever format you like of course, with any reasonable compiler. The formatting is how the code is laid out on the screen.

    Early formats like K&R, classic C and Stroustrups were devised when people worked, at best, on 80x24 character screens, or on printed pages. The essence of these formats was to get as much on the screen/page as possible. It didn't matter what it's readability figures were like.

    These days, with modern IDE's this is no longer a limitation, and one can apply a format scheme that has high readability factor. Whitesmiths and Ellemtel were amongst the early leaders, but the format with consistantly the highest readability factor is Allman format.
