Useful Books

Here are some good useful paper sources

Title Publishers Authors Brief Description
Learning Perl O'Reilly Randal L. Schwartz & Tom Christiansen Basically most books coming from O'Reilly press are good reference books. They are not necessarily the best books for beginners but from intermediate to expert users the books are tremendously useful.
Java in a Nutshell O'Reilly David Flanagan Again, not a superb book for beginners but good reference material.
The C Programming Language Second Edition Prentice Hall Brian W. Kernighan & Dennis M. Ritchie There are better beginner books out there but this was the one I learned C with.
Core Java Second Edition The Sunsoft Press Gary Cornell & Cay S. Horstmann A very comprehensive book. Look for the second book, I think its call Core Jave II, for advanced programmers.

There a ton of good books out there so trying to list them all is impossible. If you know of some good books how about passing it on to us? Please click here to goto our improvement form.
