I finished the C book, and practiced a bit. Now it's time to crack open C++ Primer Plus. Weighing in at 3.8 pounds (1.7 kg) and 1,365 pages (excluding index), it's a beast. But I want to learn this thing, and learn it well.
I know that I don't need to know everything in this book to do well in the interview, but I want to know it so that when I get the job I won't be clueless when I read complex code that uses more of the language features.
