The 2nd edition is out of print, although you can still by the Kindle edition from Amazon.com. We put a lot of work into making sure that the 3rd edition covers all of the material in the 2nd edition, plus much more.

If you're using Windows 7 or earlier, there's a PDF that you'll use -- but you only need it to replace chapter 1 and five pages in chapter 2, and then you don't use it again for several hundred pages.

We spend most of the book teaching OOP concepts. If you have Windows 8.1, you should definitely get the 3rd edition. You will need to download Visual Studio 2012 for Windows 8: http://www.microsoft...s.aspx?id=30664 (the book works with that version, not VS2013).
