    Learning..?

    Hi,

    I myself dont start learning C/C++ until my third year at Uni. I am currently in my first year and begin java/html soon..(w00p..lol)

    Anyway, i want to teach myself (if possible) so when the time comes i will know what's what.

    Can anyone recommend any good beginner books or even where to start?..Ie, is it best to learn C anymore, should i just start with C++ ?

    Regards,

    Nagi

    I can be much easier to learn C++ after you learn C. I know this from experience, but you don't have to necessarily learn it first. If you wanted to learn C++ right away get the book from Deitl and Deitl, it's the best one out there for beginners, and has taught millions on the corporate level.

    Java has much in common with C and C++. If you learn Java first it will be easier to learn C and C++ afterwards. And since you will learn java at your Uni this year anyway it might be best to just concentrate on Java this year and start learning C/C++ next year.
