Hello everyone. I am interested in learning C++ and am looking for a good book to start out with. I read the topic in the sticky in this forum and have narrowed my choice of beginner books down to either

A) C++ How to Program by Harvey M. Deitel

or

B) C++ Primer Plus by Stephen Prata

I was wondering if many of you have had any experience with these two books and if there are any pluses when choosing the book by Deitel over Prata’s book (considering that the first book cost twice as much). I intend to eventually do Windows programming and I am also considering going to school and majoring in computer science next year. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
