Best C++ Beginner's Book?

Posted 29 June 2009 - 10:11 AM

Hello, I've looked through the stickied posts and gone to the attached links only to still be without a clear answer. I'm just looking for a good book I can order online / go to the bookstore and pickup that will help me start learning C++. Just wondering if anyone here at DIC has any good experiences with particular books/guides, I would really appreciate it!

Thanks!

i used diane Zak :: intro to c++,
when i was first learning, its good because it doesnt just shove the
code in your face. I gives you a perspective outlook on what you doint then it gives you pseudo code, and eventually walks you through the coding process

prabh, thanks for that. Although I'm at work I did some research on the book and found out I could get it for around 10 bucks! I've also been looking at the consumer reviews and they are outstanding as well. I'll be purchasing this right when I get home :-)

I have the sams teach your self in 21 days, their is points that I like about it and some that I do not enjoy. For my visual basic.net class I just finished we used a Diane Zak, and I would strongly suggest you at least give it a glance.

I tackled this exact question in I think my first post on this forum. My old post on C++ books and the thread advice is worth reading.

You really don't need a book as everything needed to learn C++ is on the web. Just gotta know how to google
