    I quite like "Accelerated C++". Not certain who it's by... Two authors one with the surname "Moo". Sorry to be vague about that one XD

    If you already know C or another programming language, this book is pretty good: http://www.amazon.com/Learning-Hands...4159604&sr=8-3

    I got a chance to read through this one a bit and thought it was decent: http://www.amazon.com/Active-Learnin...4159680&sr=1-4

    I really like C++ Programming for the absolute beginner....by Mark Lee and Dirk Henkemans....it's a bit based on building simple games, but really teaches you a lot of the C++ primer...it also gives you a quick look at Windows API and Direct X

    I have Java for dummies, I don't know about the C++ one, but I've always found their books incredibly slow... As for SAMS, that series has a very mixed reputation, some people really like it, others completely hate it. One thing to note is, it will take longer than the time it says.

    I used Sam's Teach Yourself in 24 Hours, thought it was great. You have the entire internet at your disposal, just Google....there are plenty of free tutorials with source code and entire pdfs. Of course, if you want the print in front of you get a book. But be aware you will be spending most time on the computer anyway, so Google is your friends.
