    looking for a good C++ Programming book

    I just finished two C++ programming courses and I know that I had difficultly with the second one. I was wondering if anybody know a good book that goes into greater detail about classes, pointers, templates, linked lists, stacks and queues, and recursion. It would also be great with the book have practice problems. I already have starting out with C++ from control structures through objects by Tony Gaddis. I need this book because I believe that I will have take the second course again.

    The only C++ specific thing you mentioned was classes and templates. Anything else is just programming, specifically if you want to use the STL you won't be creating your own linked lists, stacks, or queues. At the top of this thread there is a list of C++ book recommendations. Included is a description of what these books are good for. May I suggest you start looking there.

    This question has been asked for at least thousands times, and at least thousands times answered.
    Personally I do not believe much in courses (if you mean a guy talking to a group of 30 students), although they may help sometimes.
    I never put signature, but I decided to make an exception.

    I took a course on Java last year and the instructor basically read the programming book and assigned us projects ... A student can read the book on their own...

    This is my favorite c++ book I own -
    BARNES & NOBLE | C++ for Programmers (Deitel Developer Series) by Paul J. Deitel | NOOK Book (eBook), Paperback

    It's pretty thick, but it covers a lot of information with, in my opinion, very good examples and explanations.

    I recommend Acclerated C++ (Accelerated C++). A beginner's book, but covers a lot of good information in the basics.
