    Reading a book (split from the books thread)

    I am new to C++, and im currently reading accelerated c++, I find it a great book, but i am wondering which books might be good reading after that one? Will I have to learn further about console c++? or can I start with something graphic?

    thanks in advance.

    I'd suggest C++ Coding Standards to improve your C++ knowledge. Then, it really depends on what you want to do. You can try to get more and more advanced in the language with many of the other books listed in the first couple posts in this recommendations thread. Or you can focus on a specific type of coding, like graphics, algorithms, networking, etc.

    "Effective C++" and "More Effective C++".

    You should be ready for a beginning Graphics/GUI book after finishing Accelerated C++ (if that's what you want to do). I got the Petzold Book after finishing a beginning C++ book. I was shocked that nothing in that book looked like the C++ I'd been studying, and I was shocked that Hello Windows was 2 pages of code! But, with reading, re-reading, and studying I was able to understand it...
