4.0 out of 5 stars A solid introduction, 12 Dec. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beginning OpenGL Game Programming (Paperback)
This is a very good introductory book to OpenGL. I purchased this book because I wanted an insight into how OpenGL works and possibly to be able to produce something of my own. At the moment it's slow progress as I found that there is a lot to take in with OpenGL and a lot of it isn't very concrete until you actually sit down and code it yourself.

The authors also expect you to have knowledge and prior experience with C/C++ and this is indeed a prerequisite to reading the book so please don't get this book if you have no experience with the aforementioned languages as you will struggle. Aside from the above points the book is a solid introduction and is written well, the CD with all of the source code on is very useful too.
