4.0 out of 5 stars Best C++ 11 reference I've found, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The C++ Standard Library: A Tutorial and Reference (Hardcover)
Whilst this will not teach you the details of C++ programming language - this is the book you'll be using regularly for reference.

You'll want another book to teach you about the semantics of the language - but that is likely to be stuff you'll learn and remember (certainly if you want a job using C++). What you won't remember is the hundreds of library classes, and their functions. This book covers them well.

The C++ language is evolving, and whilst it doesn't go into detail with the basics it does cover the changes that are happening to the language with C++ 11. Some of these being quite significant (Smart Pointers, limited Garbage Collection, Lambdas, Range based for loops...).

Sadly most compilers don't follow the complete C++ 11 standard yet. Takes a long time for compilers to implement the standards. So google around to see what features your chosen compiler supports.
