    Question Which Book?

    Tomorrow I am gonna drop by the library and pick up a C++ book. I just started today. I downloaded DEV-C++. I barely know anything about C++- so which do you think would be best for me to get started on? I read somewhere earlier Herb's material was easy to comprehend.

    Jeez....this question came up about 8 hours ago.......on this very board....

    Do a search and you will get loads of opinions of Schildts books

    Or try ACCU - probably the best coding book reviews on the web but warning - they dont like old Herb on that site......

    Yea, now you have to go all the way to the search page on these boards and actually type in "books" to find the information you want, what horror.
