TDDD33 Programming (C++)

Book Recommendations


There are many C++ books "out there". You are welcome to choose another than the main book, but make sure any book you get cover the new C++11 standard. Here follow a few recommendations. You may want a book better suited to your background and future. The course is not particulary bound to any book, but a book is recommended for reference. Try to take a look in a few books before you buy, if possible. The course leader may also have a few books to take a quick peek in.

One extra advantage of a book is that you can bring it to the exam.
