Hello, I have the dutch translation of the book 'Cpp Blackbook'. I'm at the half of the book, and understand most part of it. But now it feels like I get too much information at once and that the book is just too 'expanded' (it's about 700 pages). Should I buy a smaller book, and do the other book later, when I have some better Cpp knowledge? I was thinking of this http://www.gamedev.net/columns/books/bookdetails.asp?productid=379 book. Would it be the right book for me? Thanks.

I think you should finish some basic programming book first, before you start
on a 700 pages game programming book. Its too hard to learn advanced game programming at the same time you learn basic C++.

The first book I read about C++ was "Teach yourself C++ in 21 Days".
It is easy to understand and not too technical, but does not cover the
most advanced parts of C++.

Another book you might want to check out is the O'Reilly series
http://cprog.oreilly.com/
they are usually easy to work with for beginners

I know the basics of Cpp programming, but the other 300 pages that are still left are about more advanced stuff. So I was thinking if that book ('Beginning cpp game programming') would be good for me (the description says: 'Written for the beginner, this book assumes no previous programming experience').

Pasqal.

Sorry, but I think you misunderstood me.

I have a book about Cpp ('Cpp Blackbook') and it's pretty big (700 pages). I'm over the half of it, but now it's only about more advanced stuff, which is just too much for me right now, that's why I want to learn Cpp from an other book (I was thinking of 'Beginning Cpp game programming').

Hopefully this makes it more clear.

Pasqal.

And sorry for the double post.
