C++ Book/Class Recs?

Hi! I’m new here and was wondering if anyone has recommendations on how to start learning C++17. I already know Python pretty well and just need to learn the syntax of C++ because I heard it’s better to use in USACO. Any tips?

I’ve found this book by the creator and this other book to be really helpful.

You can probably find online versions somewhere.

Make sure that you do everything he does and actively watch the video.

For me, learning C++ when I originally used Python 3 just required practice + liberal use of Google, to internalize the techniques/syntax, but the USACO Guide came in handy: https://usaco.guide/general/resources-learning-to-code?lang=cpp

If you are looking for a YouTube playlist, I suggest this: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlrATfBNZ98dudnM48yfGUldqGD0S4FFb.

It is one of the best I have come across. It focuses on concepts more than code.
