Learning C++ by Creating Games with UE4 Reviews
I purchased this book primarily as an introduction to UE4 (with a C++ focus), not as a C++ primer... (I've been writing in C++ for a living for 20+ years) - I thought that this book would be a good starting point for UE4.
TL;DR If you are buying this book to learn C++, then you are going to learn how to write "bad" C++. And the UE 4 content is outdated .I bought this primarily for learning Unreal Engine 4 rather than C++, but I have a huge problem with the content of the book as it is intended for _learning C++_ as the title reads.
I'm still working my way through this book, but I wanted to post an early review as an important caveat to potential buys --
