For a while now i've been wanting to learn C++. I've been through some guides, but for me none of them are really helping. I find them to be tedious and confusing, and never really telling you what you want to know. So i'm asking someone here who could recommend be a really good guide (saves me alot of time) or pass on some general pointers. Thanks.

Do you know other programming languages?

So what "guides" have you been through so far? What do you find confusing in them, and what is it that you want to know that those guides don't tell you? Answering these might help find a better way for you to learn the language.

Personally, I used a book titled "C++ Primer Plus" by Stephen Prata. For me, it was quite easy to follow. I did have prior experience with other languages though.

Avoid online guides as they are typically riddled with errors and/or promote the authors personal preferences.

Try the book "C++ Fundamentals (CyberRookies)". Noting that, as I purchased this over a decade ago it may not still be in print; could've been placed in the public domain though.

I suggest you read books instead of online guides as the former is more informative in terms of the syntax and the like. I use the book "C++ for Engineers and Scientists" and I find it very helpful.

Syntax is something you can learn from nearly every book on the market. Get one that has lots of examples. If you really want to develop projects in C++ though, you will need to learn a lot of algorithms. I cant recommend a book, that has algorithms mostly due to the fact, that I'm from Bulgaria and I don't know the English title of the books I use, but I'm sure you will find something. Good luck !
