    You guys probably get this a lot but, I'm looking for a book.

    Hey. I'm thinking about buying this book its called, 3D Game Engine Programming, because game programming is something i rly want to learn. However, i went to Borders and checked it out. Unfortuantly i found that my C++ knowledge is not up to par for this book. Basically i have a high school working knowledge of C++ lol. This basically means, i know how to declare the basic variables, functions, arrays, and that type of stuff and the school offers nothing higher than that , but nothing advanced enough to rly tackle a book like this. So basically, i'm wondering if anyone knows of a book or website or something that would help me to advance my knowledge of C++ to the point where i could be able to learn from a book like that. Thx to anyone who can help.


    What i rly need is a book that gives a strong understanding of advanced uses of classes, functions(though i said i learned them we rly burnt through them), advanced types of variables(besides the basic int, double, bool, string, and what not) and symbols. But mainly classes. Thx a lot for any suggestions.

    I suggest you use the search function on this board. This question has been asked many times, and has been answered many times.

    Try this tutorial. It is up to standards, and very explanatory. It says its a beginners tutorial and it is but it covers very advanced topics. http://cplus.about.com/library/blcplustut.htm Also it has even more advanced tutorials here http://cplus.about.com/library/bladvcplus.htm Enjoy!

    yes, please search the boards... and also you might want to get some sort of book about OO Software development.

    ok

    I will do a search of the boards. And will also check out those sites. I also found what looked like some nice tutorials on this site(Cprogramming.com). Is this actually a part of cprogramming.com or is it seperate? lol this isn't C++ but i'm just curious. Cause i couldn't find a link to here from the tutorial page. Thx everyone.

    Those tutorials are a bit outdated but they're alright. Look around some of the recent threads on this forum and you'll see a lot of suggestiongs for other really good tutorials. These forums are part of cprogramming.com.
