I started Objective-C programming without much of a C/C++ background (as in, I hadn't gotten past "Hello World"). Now, I consider myself pretty junior as I started Obj-C 3 years ago. Lately, I've been getting into pure C programming, but I've been reading about C++ and how it is apparently better than C. Now, I should tell you that I've expressed some interest in the computer science industry. Having said that, would my time be better spent reading a C book or a C++ book? Which one should I get? So far, I have two candidates: -"The C Programming Language" by K&R -"The C++ programming language" by Bjarne Stroustrup I've also taken a look at some kind of book about algorithms w/ programs written in C.
