"Sams Teach Yourself Windows Game Programming with DirectX in 21 Days"??? And if you have what did you think of it? I´ve read about the book and it seems it is focusing on 2D using DX 8.1. I want to know (although it´s mainly 2d) if there´s enough info about dgraphics so one can make full 3d scenes.

Unfortunately, with the slew of game programming books that have come out recently, there have been a lot of poor-quality ones as well. I personally don''t know if that book''s any good, but be careful anyway before buying.
