    Looking for a c++ book, didn't were to post this...

    I'm not sure were to post this but I thought this would be the best place.


    I now am looking for a good c++ book. Not too much money somewere under 30 dallors. Probebly around 20 bucks (I know cheap). I am looking on amazon.com but I don't know if they are good or not. I got basic knowlage only so I don't want a book that only has basics. But maybe a book with basics and advanced or something like that. But then I don't want just an advanced book so I can't use it.

    -sigh-

    You guys know my level of programing so what would you sugest?



    Edit: Could someone tell me how this book looks. It comes with a Visual C++ 6.0 compiler learning edition. But the price is 50 dallors used, 80 new. Here is the link... http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books


    Edit: Oh yah umm forgot about that.

    There's a little button up in the middle there called "Search".

    It does wonderful things.

    I highly recommend Accelerated C++: Practical Programming by Example by Andrew Koenig and Barbara E. Moo.

    if you can't spend more, I suggest the library.

    I always feel the backs of all the books for something stiff. If it don't bend - free software!!!

    To late now. I thought Programing C++ 3rd edition. Or something like that. I don't think there is a cd tho :'( but it looked the best. Because the other ones looked like they either,

    1. More then half the book was on stuff I already know

    or

    2. Had to many errors including int he code.

    So I will probebly get anouther book on windows api some day.

    Theres a great book called "C++ Fundamentals", it covers basic and advanced concepts in C++ in simplest terms. I think you'll like it.
