I'm making a transition from Visual Basic.net over to C++, I've been reading this sites tutorials and they have been very informative but I'm needing a little more, specifically set tasks. My Dad attempted at one stage to learn C++ and has quite a few books left over from it.
I had a look through a few of them and I noticed that C++ Black Book 2001 edition (ISBN 1-57610-777-9) seemed to be one of the best there. I was just wondering, is it? I have a couple more, Idoit's guide to C++ 2002 edition (I think, I would have to double check) and something called C++ made easy being a few.
I'm just curious, is the C++ Black Book as good as it looks, or would I be better off buying something different? I have firm knowledge of programming basics, having been taught VB at school from year 10 (2006) to year 12 (2008) and I topped the class. I need a book more for the tasks/challenges and maybe a little explanation on some finer points.
