SAMS series are usually well-written and their architectonic style leads from the simple to the more complex in a logical manner. If you have a little programming background, you can read this with profit, even if you don't quite make the 21-day goal.
Certainly the price makes it even better, though you might do better if you browsed local used books stores.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I suggest you don't buy the book and suggest you read the ACCU's recommendations and reviews.

I would also ask yourself why you are choosing to learn C++ over other languages such as C or Java. I'm not saying you are making a bad choice, just that I've seen many people learn C++ because they think its "_the_ language" or because it has a "++" it must be vastly superior to C.

If I were you and was going to learn C++ I'd buy Bjarne Stroustrup's book. He created C++ and wrote a very good book on the subject.

Hi, i bought that book a little while ago, and now that high school has finished, and i have broken my leg :thumbsup: , i have nothing else todo but learn C++ for the next 6 weeks. So far its pretty clearly layed out and is helping me to grasp the fundamentals of this programming language. I wouldn't garuntee that you will learn it all in 21 days, all depends on how fast you learn really. I have time so i am going to try and spend about 2 days on each day.
