    folowup book recomendation

    Hi, I was wondering what would be a good book to follow up c++ primer plus with? My teacher decided to try this book out this semester instead of Deitel's c++ how to program... I looked through the book recommendations but am not sure what would be a good (stylistically modern) followup book, thats not too redundant.

    That depends on what kind of follow up you want. What do you want to learn next? You can browse the book recommendation thread for ideas.

    Well I was hoping something that would work like a continuation. Something that goes more in depth into the stl, templates, and object oriented programming in general i guess. The closest book as far iv seen (by just giving quick glances at the table of contents) was thinking in c++ volume 2 but that books about 10 years old.

    I probably should mention that my goal is to be as prepared as possible for data structures and algorithms in c++ in the fall.

    If you want to learn more about C++, then I suggest Effective C++, 3rd Edition by Meyers, C++ Common Knowledge by Dewhurst, and The C++ Standard Library by Josuttis.

    You might as well start early, but I cannot recommend any such text that uses C++ as I have not read any of them.

    Ok I ordered effective c++ and c++ common knowledge, they sound like they would both help get me writing more correct code. I also ordered the book that the school im transferring too used for the course before data structures. Ill probably get the the c++ standard library a tutorial and reference another time.

    Do you think C++ primer would be worth getting as a reference on the language?
