Can anyone recommend any good books to start learning C++? I have looked at some of the online tutorials that were recommended, and have started going through them, but I would like to have a text book to refer to as well. Thanks in advance!

Bjarne Stroustrup designed C++, and his webpage has some links to research papers and books that he has written on the subject: http://www.research.att.com/~bs/papers.html. You may look at The C++ Programming Language Third Edition in particular.

Also, if you have some experience with programming (especially C), I highly recommend Thinking in C++ Second Edition Volume One: Introduction to Standard C++ by Bruce Eckel.

If you don't have any programming experience, most of the beginner books seem pretty much the same, although some a more expensive than others. I wouldn't spend more than $30 - $40 on a beginner book (if that much).

And finally, one you get comfortable with the language a little bit, I think this is a really helpful site: http://www.cppreference.com/.
