You could kill two birds with one stone: buy a good book on DirectX and make sure it comes with a CD containing the DX SDK. I''d recommend "Programming RPGs with DirectX" by Jim Adams (it covers an absolute tonne of useful info relating to games in general so you can actually ignore the fact that it has RPG in the title).
