I have a huge collection of books but they are mostly the waste of money and time books like Teach Yourself series. I was wondering since I have a basic understanding of C++ if it was a smart move to go ahead and read C++ Primer, Optimizing C++ (at a later date), and then use the Complete C++ Reference as just that, a reference. Doing the examples and exercises as I go and experimenting with every piece of data I learn. Been told to avoid C++ Primer Plus. Do you think these are good books to learn from?
I'm sure it is, if you can afford to get it. $60 is a little much for me right now.C++ Primer, Optimizing C++, and C++ Reference I got on mark down. If I got Bjarne's book I'd have to absolutely get the Special Edition of The C++ Programming Language.
Yeah, according to what I read the Special edition has a lot of error corrections that the 3rd ed doesn't, has a few more appendices of data, etc. Though I didn't think about the used versions and they are only $30, a little more reasonable for my situation.
