Need book on C++

Post by DingoBebe on Fri May 27, 2011 11:51 pm
([msg=57801]see Need book on C++[/msg])

First, I went through all the threads and didn't find anything.

I am starting college this fall as a CS major and don't know anything passed creating strings and arrays. Recommend me a great book or online tutorials. So far I am learning from cplusplus.com, but I want to know if I can get my hands on something better.

P.S. Same thing for JAVA if you happen to know of any please!!!

Thanks so much!

I'll save Thetan the trouble of posting by saying this:

The C programming Language By Brian W. Kernighan and Dennis M. Ritchie.

It's out there, just look for it.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.

For C++ I highly recommend: C++ A Beginner's Guide second edition by Herbert Schildt - ISBN: 978-0-07-223215-8

And for Java I would recommend Java Gently Third Edition by Judith Bishop.

I've used both books on my undergrad course and I swear by both of them, both are excellent books. Hope that helps.

This is the book that I first leaned C++(you can learn 1day per day)
http://newdata.box.sk/bx/c/


If you finish the chapter about pointers and structures you can read(this stuff its not language specific):
Data Structures and Algorithms in C++,2nd Edition (usually you will learn this in the first year of collage).

After finishing the object orientated programming chapter I recommend reading about Design Patterns and Anti Patterns.

For c++ KNR is sooo the way to go.
But the book I learned on, and will own until the day I die is by Dietal and Dietal 0136117260

It's a great book, and was the one required in first year University. Students from other years were on a different book, and many of them spent the cash to get the book.

In second year, I had to learn Java in a very short time. Java in plain English was a fun book. .It's dated now, but if you can get your hands on one I'd say it could guide you well.
