What is a few good books to learn C++?
What is a few good books to learn php?
Note; I've tried to look for myself, there is just soo many books out there, it's kind of difficult to make a decision on which to try. I've bought 2 already, and they tend to ramble for 200 pages about what php is, and it's uses, but barley teach any of the actual coding to you.
Just so you know why I ask -
I want to learn php for personal uses, since I enjoy web development(at least what I've seen of it from highschool classes).
I want to learn some basics of C++, assuming I'm going to be using it when I go to college for programming.

If all else fails you can order a book online, but it is always better to see it before you get it.

For C++, I'd recommend the following authors:
- Stephen Prata has one of the classic tomes
- Bruce Eckel's books
- Herb Sutter
- Head First series, get the patterns and the design ones.
For PHP books, I don't know. Never used it.

Oh and for php, I'm good now, I think I've found a good book. I started reading it yesterday night and I'm learning pretty fast from it.

it only says relevent information.It shows you the techniques, rather than just presenting you with something and saying how to use it.
And for PHP The Complete Reference is perfect book.The book covers the very basics right from installing and configuring PHP.
