Best reference for C++ STL and advanced learning

Hi can you please suggest me a good book which helps me to understand the advanced topics in C++ which helps me in participating for the programming contests-such as containers, vectors, mapping lists, sets etc.I know browsing in Internet is a better option.But i am having some sight problems with my eye.So i cant strain much in front of my PC.Can you suggest some good books which includes example programs also?


I heard that Effective C++ will be a good option…
Is that true??

Go through this and find yourself a good book that suits your need.

For reference, the best book (for me) is by the creator himself The C++ Programming Language by Bjarne Stroustrup.

If you are asking only for programming contest perspective I will suggest three TC articles:

  1. Power up C++ with the Standard Template Library: Part I
  2. Power up C++ with the Standard Template Library: Part II: Advanced Uses
  3. A Crash Course in the C++ Standard Template Library (For a very quick reference)

If it strain your eyes too much you can always take the print out. I did that myself. Hope this helps.

I did it from The C++ Standard Library. Chapter 6 is sufficient for learning STL.
