    If you have been exposed to the programming world through some other language then by all means go with the accelerated C++. I have that book and i think it ROCKS. But, if you are a total newbie to programming in general, then SAMS might be something to get first and read over. After that you may want to look into accelerated C++ for the later chapters. There are some more practical (well says it in the title doesn't it? ) uses and well...it'll be more useful. Basically if programming isn't BRAND SPANKING new to you (like you didn't even know what it was until someone told you about it 5 days ago), go with Accelerated C++. Good luck!

    Re: which book?

    Avoid the Jesse Liberty book. "Accelerated C++" is good.

    Bruce Eckel's "Thinking in C++" is good; especially if you're coming from a C background.

    The "C++ FAQ's" book is good.

    The first few chapters of Norman Lin's "Linux 3D Graphics Programming" might be helpful to you as well.

    Josuttis' "The C++ Standard Library" is also very good.

    Of course, it goes without saying (hmm.. not sure why I'm saying it then) that Stroustrup's "The C++ Programming Language" is required reading.

    See the accu site for reviews. http://www.accu.org/
