Seeking a Recommendation for C++ Book

  • #1
Dear Physics Forum advisers,

I am trying to learn the C++ programming language as I need it for my upcoming research in the theoretical computing and cryptography. This is my first time learning the programming language so I am seeking two books (I prefer to learn from the books than using online sources), one covering C++ in the introductory level and one as a detailed, advanced, and referencing book. Could help me?

For the reference book: Bjarne Stroustrup's "The C++ Programming Language", most recent edition.

The best introductory C++ book would be C++ How To Program By Dietels.
After finishing it, go for C++ Primer by Stanley Lippman. It will drive you to the intermediate level.

DO NOT ever think about starting with Bjarne Stroustrup's book, it is an intermediate/advanced book, and it will drive you crazy if you start with it.
