c++ stl reference book for ACM-ICPC

Posted on 2011-10-30
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I'm going to be competing at an ACM-ICPC competition this weekend and using the internet extensively as a resource to find syntax clarification and pre-defined functions already written into the standard lib, I realized I won't have access to the internet there, so I need some really good books so I can worry less about the syntax of things, and worry more and getting the "correct answer."

I've been reading about resources and such online, but I need physical reference materials, so any help on finding books that I can order (fast) and will be greatly beneficial and appreciated. Thanks guys!

P.S. If there are any other books or materials that will be useful to me, please do not hesitate to let me know. I need help finding to good algorithms book too, and will definitely be bringing my math and physics textbooks with me, just in case I get tripped up on math/phys >.>

    I know this may be a bit ridiculous to ask this but, anything a little cheaper than that but still just as effective?

    I am a college student on a budget unfortunately, but I'm more than happy to shell out the money on it if it'll be a good long term investment, I'm just not sure if it is, since I'll almost always have the internet available to when while coding...

    you could attempt to save your internet web pages as pdf files and then print them - that could be a lot of work -- and then you don't have the indexes and table of contents like you would have in a book.
