''C++: How To Program'' by Deitel and Deitel is an excellent book.

A look at Amazon.com user reviews on a search for C++ have turned up these five star C++ books:

A Complete Guide to Programming in C++
by Ulla Kirch-Prinz, Peter Prinz
$76.95

Absolute C++
by Walter Savitch, Walter J. Savitch
$76.00

Learn to Program with C++
by John Smiley
$20.99

Those are just a few of many books on how to program in C or C++. A book on C would do you just as good as a book on C++, for the most part. C is the basis of C++, and it is impossible to learn C++ without learning C. Do not fret, though, because basically all beginner C++ books teach you to program in C, too. The best thing for you to do would probably read reviews of books at Amazon.com and go to the bookstore and read the first chapter or two of a couple C or C++ books.

Good luck!

If you're smart and hardcore about this, I can certainly recommend
Essential C++
by Stanley B. Lippman
$33.95 Retail

One of my friends is currently learning by this, and he says it's pretty easy to understand. Of course, I learned C++ 3 years ago, so I can't give an objective opinion on newbie books.

Peace,

I know a lot of people don''t like the ''Learn In 24 hours/days'' type of books, but I find them easier to learn from than other books I''ve read. You might want to check those out. The book I have for C++ is ''Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 24 Hours''.

Read Ivor Horton''s Beginning Visual C++ 6.0. It contains every detail of c++ syntax you could ever want to know. It also shows much of win32. The book contains useful information about classes and stacks.

I'm learning C++ at the moment.

While C++ is not my first language I would definitely recommend C++ Primer by Stanley B. Lippman and Josee Lajole.

I've found the book quite heavy going for a beginner, but it's really doable and has a good reputation for teaching "good" C++.

Good luck!

BTW, every beginning C++ programmer should know about Bruce Eckel's free C++ book called Thinking in C++ that you can download for free on the net. This book requires some C knowledge, but is also one of the best written programming books I've seen around.

I have had a class with Savitch and own several of his books from my schooling. I am not familiar with Absolute C++, but I would avoid books by Savitch as, looking back, I don''t like his style of writing or teaching.

If you have some programming experience, I would go with Accelerated C++. Additionally, this is about the 4th thread on this subject this week, so look around in the forums for more insight, and as a future time saver.

The Tyr project is here.
