As the title states, i am looking for a good book to help teach myself C++. I have taken a class in College but I feel it is so rudimentary knowledge of the language. I want to go farther with this language and learn more about it. The book for the class was Object-Orientated Programming in C++ written by Robert LaFore. Any other books you would recommend?
As for jobs, computer science degrees don't prepare for software engineering jobs. Spend some time in open source projects, that helps, get internship, or find a company that does training; where I work, all C++ juniors go through 16 weeks of intensive training before they can begin work.

Don't forget, to learn you have to do more than just read though. You have to do all the exercises at the end of each chapter and do the examples in the chapters.
Get Bjarne Stroustrup's The C++ Programming Language as a reference while you are at it.
