This is the best book ever!!!!
I was tricked into buying "c++ for dummies" also. It was a good 20 bucks down the drain. :mad:
So I went back to 'Barnes and Noble' and bought a highly recommend book for beginners that was called ' Beginning C++' by Ivor Horton.
_It has a total of 952 pages
_Its made to teach and be understandable to a beginner
_By the end of it, one should be an excellent c++ programmer and be able to help alot of people(expecially on these forums)
_It has all the references you need in the back
_This includes ascii text for most of the bases
_online website to download free source code from the book and other stuff
_It only costs 39.99 or 29.00 off of amazon(shipping adds up)
_The only draw back is that it doesn't include a cd, but WHO CARES?! It gives you the free everlasting membership to download anything you need. ;)
This author is phenominal and I think that every C++ programmer should at least take a look at this book.:D
Oh Yeah, the only thing I have against with the "Beginning Visual C++ 6", is that it is made to teach you basically windows programming in c++. The "Beginning C++"(by the same author) has it all. :)
