    What C++ book to get with a C background

    Back when I graduated undergrad, 10 years ago I did some C++ for a CS minor. At work I've mostly done C with some small C++ projects.

    I purchased Accelerated C++ and it's on the way. I'm thinking Effective Modern C++ is a good fit as well.

    I'm currently reading learncpp and have read of the online stuff here as well.

    The big thing is probably to start coding more and more as well.

    Thanks for any input.

    I think you've made two excellent choices for your books.

    As ever, the trick is practice practice practice
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
