There are plenty of availabe in the market. you can gop for any one which suits yoyr requirments. I would suggest to go for the black book or any copy from a good publication house like WROX or TMH.

I don't know if this book is on your market bcoz it says here Only in the Philippines but try to look for it, it's Diethel and Diethel. This book is very friendly.

Yes that is also a good one and is available locally.
