THE C++ reference book


This book, written by Bjarne Stroustrup (the guy who invented C++), is the definitive reference. It is a compact, dense, authoritative reference for the C++ language.
It is not a handholding tutorial. It won't explain what a compiler is, or feed you the basic topics one nibble at a time. Although it can be used by C++ neophytes, it is aimed more at intermediate to advanced C++ programmers.
On the other hand, if you are a beginner and like reading a compressed, no-nonsense text, this book may be for you.
This book has been on my desk for a long time, and I have periodically referred to it.

exellent java book


I just passed the Java Programmer Certificate Exam with a score of 92(require 71)yesterday. After read three leading certification prep books I still feel something missing, such as Inner classes, Interface, and inheritance. I didn't feel like I get the main spirit of Java. Then I bought this book last month. This is the best Java book I have read so far, it is concise, comprehensive. I'm a college student and have learned C++ and written C++ Code for two years. I will recommand this book to every people like me who knows C++, want to learn Java and seeking Java certification.

Well organized, thorough


If you own the O'Reilly Java reference books, but find them wanting in terms of detailed tutorials, this may be the book for you. The information is well-structured and uses tables and pictures when they aid in understanding, not merely to fill space. Like other Addison-Wesley books, the layout is clean, rather than flashy. With other certification books, I found myself having to take pages of notes to integrate the stream of disorganized facts. This is definately the book for a dedicated programmer who wants to master Java, not merely to memorize a few hundred facts by rote to pass a certification.
A nice feature is the full mock exam in an appendix, with different questions than the reviews in the chapters. All of the questions were challenging and touched on difficult points.
