I''ve bet this has been asked a lot of times already. Well I have to ask again because the posts that I have skimmed through have pretty contradictory posts. (this book bad...good...subpar...blah) I''m reading SAM''s teach yourself c++ in 21 days and I think I''ve pretty much exhausted my understanding of the book and can''t go any further. (I skipped like four chapters ) Can anyone recommend me a comprehensive and complete c++ book? I hope there isn''t a list full of schidt sux and blah blah blah. Is it impossible for the majority to agree on a book? I know no book is perfect but there''s that all around goodness factor

first read the four chapters you skipped, unless you already learned that info in another book.
Next get a good reference type book, I have C++ how to program by deitel and deitel, but you can also get The C++ Language by Stroustup ( I know I must have mangled that spelling, I always do ). In fact I would get both. I have the pdf version of Stroustup''s book too. And no, I will not send it to anyone, I paid for it, you can too.
Finally, buy the more design oriented books out there like effective C++ parts one and two, and also get a design patterns book and the Art of Programming series by Knuth. If you finish all that with a deep understanding of you will be ready to learn directx or opengl

Thanks for the suggestions. I was hoping more than one person would answer tho.


You don''t need more than one person, what lucinpub has said is pretty much what others are gonna say.
