Another 'book' question...

Recommended Posts

Hello gamedev, Does anyone know of any good beginner books that actually feature assignments to test your skills. A book with game development in mind would be a huge plus. I'm not exactly completely new to C++ but, I would say I am still in the beginner skill set. I wouldn't mind starting from "Hello World" if thats where the book begins. Again, the most important thing is that it features assignments for me to work on. All suggestions welcome, thanks.

This site has loads of books and reviews. You'll not only be able to see if they include exercises, but in some cases a table of contents is provided as well. [smile]

After reading the reviews here on gamedev, I decided that book above^ was the best choice for me. Although it didn't have official assignments, it has tiny game you can make to show your progess throughout the book.

Thanks for the help.
