Accelerated C++: Practical Programming by Example
by Andrew Koenig, Barbara E. Moo
Beginning C++ Game Programming
by Michael Dawson
I was out of town for the weekend, but last night I did Chapters 1 & 2 out of the Dawson book. I also used the compiler that came with the book. After I get a little more comfortable, I will try using the .NET IDE. Another reason I am using the one from the book is that I can use it at work :)
My goal is to get done with the Dawson book by 9/15/04 and to finish Accelerated C++ by October 1st. Then, school starts on October 5th, I have no idea what book they want me to use yet.
