You can do so much with C++ that the possibilities are practically
endless. It’s an extremely versatile language that’s used in game development, desktop software, and even server programs.

If you wanna dive into C++ then you’ll want to start off with a great book. And in this post I’ve curated the ultimate collection of guides spanning the gamut of complete newbies to more adept programmers.

Regardless of your existing knowledge I guarantee you can find a great book in this list to bring your C++ skills up to the next level.

Best Newbie C++ Book

If you’re a complete beginner who can’t seem to grasp the basic concepts then I recommend Jumping into C++.

This book is perfect for anyone just getting started and it’s written in simple vernacular that anyone can understand.


The C++ Programming Language

One more extremely lengthy title is The C++ Programming Language written by Bjarne Stroustrup. Currently in its 4th edition this is one of the more densely-packed resources for aspiring programmers.

However this one is not geared towards complete beginners. You should already have some programming knowledge before grabbing this book, or at least be willing to learn as you go.

The contents get very specific into different versions of C++, modern techniques, and how to think about your applications while building them.

Later chapters get into class hierarchies and metaprogramming along with the official C++ standard library. This is one hell of a resource but it’s best used by intermediate-level coders at least.

C++ sams Teach Yourself

I always like the Sams Teach Yourself series because the writing speaks to everyone in plain English. So many programming books read like tech manuals and that’s just terrible for beginners.

Thankfully Sams Teach Yourself C++ is a true-blue beginner’s guide with 480 pages of exercises and lessons for newbies.

Early chapters cover the absolute basics like variables, functions, and pointers. They’re all explained clearly and they use examples to help you follow along with code. But as you go a bit deeper this book can feel more challenging.

Topics like polymorphism and exception handling don’t get much coverage. Beginners will have to rely on Google for answers to their inevitable questions.

But even beyond these minor shortcomings I still think this book is decent for complete beginners. Sometimes when you’re just getting started you need simple words to help you understand the fundamentals before you can even worry about more advanced ideas—and that’s exactly what this book offers.

C++ For Dummies

Another traditional “newbie guide” is the C++ For Dummiesbook written by Stephen R. Davis. Currently in its 7th edition this title has been around for a long time.

If you’ve never created a program before in your life then this book will get you there fast. The early chapters are especially easy to read and they’ll guide newbies into the wonderful world of CPP application design.

As you go further you’ll bump into some challenging exercises that might take you a few days or even a week to complete. This happens right around the chapter on classes and inheritance, both incredibly valuable topics that you’ll need to learn.

But if you put in the time and work through the exercises you’ll wonder how you were ever confused in the first place!

++Jumping into C

.jumping into cpp

Jumping into C++ offers a firehose of information right from the first page. It has fewer lessons than other books, however it does come with plenty of code snippets to help explain concepts as they appear.

This book starts with basic programs and simple functional commands that everyone should learn. It quickly moves through CPP arrays, loops, and basic functions pushing into classes and the STL library.

But many of the detailed topics like classes and algorithms aren’t presented with as much detail. The goal of this book is to get you familiar with writing C++ syntax from scratch. It is not a complete guide to everything and it shouldn’t be treated like that!

Instead pick this up if you’re a complete novice and really want a structured learning experience. You’ll be surprised how much you can absorb with just a few chapters and some elbow grease.
