I'm about to have interviews for my placement year at University, 3 of them are games development with c++, i know c++ (console applications) and some winapi, (just got petzold last week) but nothing about games development.
I need a couple of good books to get me started and teach me how to write a couple of simple games. i assume i'm supposed to learn Directx and openGL.
can you reccomend some books?
is there anything else i need to get started?
I have only Microsoft visual studio.
