Hi! Two questions 1) What is the best book (or books) for learning directx 8 and 2) What is the difference between the two books Beginning Direct3D Game Programming and The Zen of Direct3D Game Programming, both of which are by the same publisher? Thanks for your help in advance!

I have Beginning Direct3D Game Programming and I love it. It''s a great book for learning the D3D portion of DirectX 8. Another good book I''ve found is Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus, which is all about DirectX 7, but is a great reference for DirectInput, DirectSound, and some other DirectX topics (these sections didn''t change much in DirectX 8). But the most helpful resource that I use for DirectX 8 is the help documentation for C++ that comes with the SDK. It''s got a million nice tutorials and sample code out the wazzoo.
