    Hi


    Like a few others, I am/was a fan of Deitel&Deitels C[1], C++[2].
    They come/came with a CBT (computer based training).
    I just had a quick glance at Stroustrup's book and it looked useful.
    Actually, mathgirl32 is recommending it[3].

    Death_Knight, as you could guess, this questions has been
    asked here quite a few times already[3,4]


    Cheers

    The C++ Programming Language - Bjarne Stroustrup
    The C++ Standard Library A tutorial and reference - Nicolai M. Josuttis

    Both are excellent guides to learn from and use as a reference.

    Hmm... well actually i am not pretty sure what i should go for. Some say should learn C before C++ but to some is alright about it.

    I am a average Java programmer, learnt J2/ME/SE/EE. Basic C++. Not sure whether the books is too tough for me..

    The book I recommended is good for experts and beginners.

    I wouldn't bother.

    C++ is a superset of C, so includes C programming. The catch however is that many of the habits and techniques you pick up with C programming are frowned upon in C++.

    It really all depends on what you want to build. I'd go with C++ myself. Everyone has an opinion on the best language, all that matters however is what you feel comfortable with and what you think is the best language for the projects you have in mind.

    You would, tho the scanf and printf stuff isn't used so much. There are objects that are better suited to handling this type of activity in C++.
