C++ book recommendation

P: n/a
FC
Hi all:
I am looking for a C++ book that will help me take my skills to the next
level. My highest level of C++ education goes as far as the Data
Structures class in college. As part of a project for another class
(SystemC) I have to modify this code that is (as far as I know)
industrial grade code. And off course, I am having problems with it. I
do have the Stoutstrup (spelled right?) book, but I found it hard to
understand. May be I need something that will leave me ready for that
book. With that information in mind please recommend me a book.

The second version of C++ Primer is a good start.

See the alt.comp.lang-learn.c-c++ FAQ for some recommendations.

Stroustrup is a good book, but it's more of a reference.

I'd recommend these 3 books.

Accelerated C++ (Koenig/Moo)
Effective/More Effective C++ (Meyers)

Design Patterns
Refactoring
Test-Driven Development
Refactoring to Patterns.

Except most of them use Java. Forgive them - they know not what they do.

I strongly recommend the C++ Primer (4th version). It is a really nice
beginning book. easy to understand and lots of examples

.... And of course the 3rd and 4th editions are even better, especially
because the 2nd edition was published in 1991 !

Add
"Effective STL" (Scott Meyers) to the two earlier Meyers books.
Also Add
"Inside the Object Model" (Stanley Lippman)
His C++ blog posting.
http://blogs.msdn.com/slippman

A good UML book will go a long way also.
Heres one I like alot. Espeacily in undersatanding design patterns.
"Real time UML: Developing Efficient Objects for Embedded Systems"
(Bruce Powel Douglass)
Dont let the realtime or embedded reference throw you this is a good
UML book it also just happens to be a good real time embedded book.

Noit sure if your working on a windows platform if so you might want to
also add.
"Win32 System Services
The heart of windows 98 and windows 2000"
(Marshal Brain, Ron Reeves)

systems class next semester.
