Hey all,

I have been doing 2D game programming in C++ with DirectX and Java (with Swing) and want to look at programming 3d games.

I'm wondering what a good book for Learning the maths necessary for 3D game programming so that I can make a start in 3D game programming. I am not very weak at my maths but it isn't exactly my forte so the book should hopefully explain the concepts clearly and give a small degree of hand-holding but it mustn't take 10 years to explain one concept. I found this book but I was just wondering what your takes are on it and others?

Thanks!

This is exactly the book I'd recommend as well, great balance between in-depth explanation and quickly grabbing info for reference. It's in my library.
