Ok Im fairly new to OpenGl, I do know a little bit of it(very little) and I would like to know if there are any good books about OpenGl for beginners, one that is fairly in-depth but still fairly easy to understand, and feel free to tell me why you think it is a good book http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif. I figured the advanced forum would be a good place to ask instead of the beginner forum because you guys have more experience and would probably know of some good books. Please and Thank you

Regards,

Red book, blue book... Probably in that order.

Another great reference is

And of course...

http://nehe.gamedev.net, I have been to this site b4 and I did find this site to be helpfull and I do like the tuts there however some of them were a bit difficult to understand so that is why I placed that last post, as far as the other site goes, I think i've heard of it b4 but I dont beleive i've been there yet but i'll take a look at it.
Thanks for the reply.

If you are looking for good books to read, then i made a post a while ago for someone with the same question.

Here is the link to it: http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/Forum2/HTML/011204.html
