Which is the best book for Qt Essentials?

 

Hello everyone!

I am interested in preparing the Qt Essentials Cerificate and for that I would like to buy a book (only one or maximum two). I saw the books that are listed here [qt.nokia.com], these are:

  1. C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4, 1st and 2nd Edition, by Jasmin Blanchette, Mark Summerfield.
  2. Foundations of Qt Development, by Johan Thelin
  3. An Introduction to Design Patterns in C++ with Qt 4, by Alan Ezust, Paul Ezust
  4. The Book of Qt 4: The Art of Building Qt Applications by Daniel Molkentin

But apparently no one treats completelly all the exam’s subjects. Could you tell me (if you know them) which is the best ?

Thanks in advance!
Sebastian

The first book (in your list) is the most informative, but the second book is the best written.

I’ve read all of them, I think you should do the same.
Every book has advantage and some minimal disadvantage.

Much better: read all of the emphasized chapters of these books. That WILL BE enough for the exam! The exam itself is not so difficult.

Thanks broadpeak!

Finally I found all of them on the net…
So no need to choose only one of them.

Bye!

This is a very good list Rahul!
It would be ideal that this information can be reached in PDF format :)

The devnet site actually HAS a PDF engine, f.i. you can export wiki pages to PDF, although it does a horrible job with code snippets…:
http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/pdf/Threads_Events_QObjects

You could ask as a feature request to having that PDF export in the documentation as well. :-)

I am glad that those links are found to be useful. Anyway, that is theory side. But for coding practices, i felt, C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4, 2nd Edition, by Jasmin Blanchette, Mark Summerfield is the best.

Foundations of Qt Development (Johan Thelin) was the most informative book I have read on Qt. I found a lot of information in other materials to be out of date. This book also goes into integrating with openGL, using QtSql for databases, multi-threading, unit testing, and networking.

There is not now, nor has there ever been, nor will there ever be, any programming language in which it is the least bit difficult to write bad code.
