I'm completely new to programming and have just started to tinker with C++ using these tutorials (which are very condensed and have few examples).
I'm enjoying it and am making progress, but can anybody recommend to me an appropriate textbook that has plenty of C++ examples and test questions?
My hope is to use this site and a textbook.
If you want test questions , explanations, drills and examples then the beginner tutorial written by the creator of c++ is good (i'm using it's pdf version, can't buy the book).
It's name is Programming: Practice and Principles Using C++
Primer Plus was a good book in 1991 (1st ed), not so much in 2011 (6th ed)): iust because it is readable doesn't mean it's teaching anything that is relevant or even true.
Stick with JLBorges's shortlist.
