I suppose if you have two C-notes burning a hole in your pocket, you could get those two (last I checked, they were both over $100). Personally, I'm not willing to pay more for two beginner's texts than I did for the entire Knuth series. Somehow I doubt the return on investment is worth it.


I agree ... both are very expensive, but you can find used books (in amazon.com for example) for less then 50% of the list price of new books.
Here in Brasil, those books are very dificult to find and are very expensive too.


thanks for the great info everyone

I appreciate that


If you are a beginner I reccomend "C++ for dummies 5TH EDITION "
its simple amusing yet affective.


C++ How to Program by Deitel
Thinking in C++ by Eckel, Bruce (Because you can download)
There is one beiginner's guide by Schidilt at Micrisoft's VC++ express page


This thread is already about 2 years old, and you're still replying in it.
If someone wants to read a good book about C++, then he can check out the sticky about that.
Maybe for further interest: ___________.
