I am trying to find a book for our study group that teaches the bare minimum C++ needed for financial applications. I am trying to teach it in a project based manner. In case, I don't settle on one book, I will have to mix different books and online resources eg. quantlib.
Any suggestions on books and online resources (eg. online course with assignments) of that spirit?
->Duffy's book "introduction to C++ for financial engineers" could have been a trully great book because in spirit it teaches and implements the bare minimum C++ material needed for financial applications.
However, as you may know already it is disappointing: a) code is full of bugs, b) the explanations are confusing for beginners and c)occasionaly the code is bad (eg. using goto).
->Joshi's OOP book, is very good with smart and neat code; however, one must be already mature in C++ before doing the problems.
->Schlogl's OOP book has very neat code and exercises and it is a good precursor to Joshi's. However, it requires knowledge up to C++ templates.
