I am serious about learning some programming languages. I read some stuff and i have decided to learn c/c++. Which one should I learn first C or C++? Do I need to know C to understand C++? What books should I get? I only have enough money to buy one book, maybe two. What books are good for NO experiance starters? Thanks to anyone who can help and your time.

Buy something that comes with a compiler or you''re going to be disappointed.

I think it''s best to learn immediatly C++ because when I started to learn C, and after that I went to C++ I saw that there are some functions that are different.
And if you want to make games, C++ should be better then C.
Else, you could also check for online courses.
if you go to
There are some courses to start with C++.
They are well given, and you have textbook, examples and so on.
Good luck with the learning :-)
