Hey i have the knowledge of C and want to learn C++. So which book should i prefer??
"Thinking in C++" by Bruce Eckel or "C++ Primer" by Stanely Lippman (if I remember correctly...)
Both pretty goods (although a little heavy).
C++ Primer Plus 5 <- Book with ~1300 pages, read this
There is a saying that if you want to learn C++ and you know C then you must forget C.
This is an important advice to prevent writing "procedural-OOP" code, but I still think it's a terrible one.
The most important thing with C++ is to learn Object Oriented Programming because for this reason it was written.
So don't try to write procedural code in C++ because that's useless. Write OOP from the start and make sure you understand OOP and recognize when and where to use it.
Thank you all.
You can use the book "Teach yourself C++". This book is very helpful to understand all the features of C++. It also helps to guide you to be a good programmer.
As suggested "Thinking in C++" is one of the best book. You'll master C++ if you start with "C++ Primer" by stanley lippman, it covers almost all of the topics in c++.
C++, a beginner guide by herbert schildt,use this book .
It can help you,promise.
C++ Primer is pretty good, I usually hate those learn this or that in 24 hours they usually skip A LOT of the important things you should really know about.
That, and they never seem to teach the reader basic programming theory or memory management. If you're going to learn a new language, make sure you learn it the right way. Spend a couple months memorizing the syntax, trying out the cool popular libraries, and make something that works on multiple platforms.
Personally I'd suggest learning by doing, not by reading a book that lets you copy/paste the code from the CD.
Try tutorials for beginning and then books, because they are advanced. Thinking in C++ for example is very very hard to understand for the first time. Once you know the basics from tutorials you can move to programming methods and libraries.
c++ beginners guide..or google for tutorial...
C++ Primer Plus 6.very good book
Check out cplusplus or learncpp
I read both C++ Primer and Thinking in C++, both were good.
Its easier to learn C++ if you are good in C.
C++ has OOPS concept in addition to C. So, just read the books written by herbert schildt.
C++ primer 5th edition is good
I purchased the book few days back it's good.
I also find the herbert schildt book very detailed. Good one if you want to go deep in this subject.
What's with you guys bumping old threads sooooo religiously.....
