C++ Book Recommendations?

Posted 06 October 2007 - 12:47 PM

Hey guys... trying to learn a bit of C++ here. Going to take out a few books from the library and see how they are. Could someone assess my reading list and perhaps supplement it with more?

The C++ programming language / Bjarne Stroustrup. 3rd ed.
Object-oriented programming in C++ / Robert Lafore. 4th ed.
Effective C++ : 55 specific ways to improve your programs and designs / Scott Meyers. 3rd ed.
(Dang... library didn't have More Effective C++...)
The art of C++ / Herbert Schildt.

Also am going to take a look at Thinking in C++ by Bruce Eckel (free ebook, yayz)

What do you guys think? I've worked with C, PHP, C#, and Java, so C-style syntax and OOPish concepts are familiar enough; I want to explore the specific aspects of C++ and see how to use C++ to its full potential.

Your time is appreciated.

"Starting out with C++" - Tony Gaddis (The eddition with pool balls on the cover)

Very good book, we used it for 2 semesters for programming..takes you from the VERY basics of understanding a computer and compiler all the way through classes and even into advanced data structures. nice source code and easy to follow examples
