Welcome back.. after what - two+ years!

Can you define 'good'? What have you looked into? What is your skill base?

Have you done a search on DIC yet? We have quite a few DirectX tutorials.

@modi123-1 thanks for the welcome back , good tutorials in my opinion are of industry standard and explain line by line what is happening .The only tutorials I found were rastertrek.com but I didn't really like the framework idea as it got messy very quickly

@boneyjoe your recommendation seems very good but does anyone know if it contains any bad habits or does something the wrong way.

The majority of tutorials do, it's up to you to learn good habits and research their implementations. Don't assume that anything you read anywhere is the be all and end all way to do things, find out yourself!

Would a good idea be to learn the content of a tutorial, then check certain keyword against MSDN?

That's not quite what I mean. The code itself will probably be sound, but how it fits into an overall product will probably be outside of the scope of the tutorial.

I only have the 3rd edition, but it is good. :)
You should already be able to program before reading it though.
