What are some good books for JS, C++, or anything related to those? I havent looked on google because they dont have your opinions up there.

Well... IMO, a JS book isn't necessary. You can just learn the basics from w3schools, then learn about the DOM. However, it is necessary to get a book to understand AJAX (which I realize is Javascript, but requires distinction). The book I have is "AJAX In Action", which is a really good book. Working my way through that one. Also, I was reading "AJAX Security" in the bookstore the past few times... very nice read as well.

For C++, the only book I used was "Teach Yourself C++ in 21 days", or whatever the amount of time was. Very well-structured book (for being one of those "teach yourself x in y days" formats), so definitely check out the internals on it before judging it. Unfortunately, it seems to have ultimately failed... as yours31f obviously hasn't learned C++ after more than 21 days.

I beg to differ, I am coding a calculator that has every function needed for a high school student, from algebra 1 - calculus and biology to physics 2. Yes math and science both. And I am making it work in win32 API



as for this thread...
I read a book called C++ through game programming.
this was a great book to learn the basics. then once I learned everything in the book i moved to the interwebs and learned as I went from there.


Debugging is what programmers do to beta software to make it take up more room on your hard drive if it is running too efficiently.

... So predictable. Just be quiet and enjoy the pun. Pfft

Stay on topic. For instance, you could take a moment to mention any books or resources you used to learn C++ and your opinion of them.

I think books can be massively helpful, even now, i still find it annoying to read a screen full of black and white text... can give me a headache when i tackle pdf's like that >.< wierd...

So i do have a fair amount of books....

And for starters, i love the for dummie books ^^ they are great.

For more advanced stuff, i learnt a fair bit from some games programming books when i did a year at uni, There are a lot of interesting new technique's involved that can be used in other ways Smile
A few games programming books i have:

Creating games in c++. A step by step guide
0-7357-1434-7
A fairly basic book, nothing to special.

Beginning c++ Game Programming
1-59200-205-6
A much better book, taught me a lot ^^

AI Game Engine Programming
1-58450-344-0
A much more indepth book, i have far from mastered many of the techniques in this book, and can only imagine at the possibility's.

All my more general C books are not c++

I defiantly recommend that AI book for a read though Wink


Thanks Yours31f!

For C++, I read The C++ Programming Language 3rd Edition, C++ For Dummies, 5th Edition and this tutorial. Also watched some of 3DBuzz' (Intro to C++ Videos, that was long time ago).

And actually reading some books now, like C++ In A Nutshell, Practical C++ Programming Nutshell Handbook - they're worth reading.

C++ for dummies is a good book for beginners, after you learn the basics I would recommend moving on to either The art of c++ or Professional C++ (wrox publishing)
