Recommended Posts

Dear Fellas,

I am a developer having around 4 yrs experience in Java/C/C++ and planning to shift my domain to gaming. I hold an engineering bachelors degree in CS. I am very much interested in game developement. But I feel; Since I almost worked on different domain it will be difficult to enter the industry and so i want to equip myself with the right skills. I reffered the For Beginners section to see what all books i can use to make me feel more comfortable with game coding. Just wanted to confirm whether those books still hold good? Or there are other ones, better , improved out there which would be more useful?

Planning to get books in areas Mathematics/Physics, Game architecture and design, Working with Directx apis and roleplay game development. If you have other good/new books/areas to recommend for a beginner please do so.

Thanks and Regards
-Ram
