[Tutor] What books do you recommend?

And I did see yours which was great.

But the reason I ask this, is because there are SO many different approaches
you could take to a single problem, how do you know which is correct or why
one is better than the other?  You can dig yourself in to holes with more
complex problems, and not understand why.

Second thing, I'd like the answer to be somewhere, in a tutorial.  If I
really didn't get the solution, it helps to have the solution walked through
and next time, I may be able to solve it (hopefully, anyway).  I'm so new at
this, that sometimes, I'm completely stumped and a few hints would go a long
way, then having the answer presented, with an explanation, even further.
