Hey, im going back into C++ after a while being out of the game for lack of having a computer. I have basic knowledge (structure, functions and the like) but its a bit faded from the long time of not studying. I am buying a book or two to get me back into programming, but im not sure what books to get, most seem to be pointed either to game programming or direct X... can someone please suggest a short list for me? thanks, and I appologise for repeating a long-asked question... lol.

Assuming you haven't (for some reason) looked here yet:

C++ Programming Books

Also, it may be helpful to rename your thread to something more Google-friendly, like "Recommended Beginner C++ Programming and Reference Books", in respect to those searching the forums.

"c++ primer plus" is awsome. i've seen an electronic version floating around, which is nice for quick references.

and i'll second and third the pragmatic programmer.
