Personally, I like the following naming conventions. const int constWeeks = 52; const int WEEKS = 52; In the first constant declaration I use the const prefix for identifying constWeeks as a constant. Notice, though, that I still capitalize the first letter in the constant name for readability purposes. In the second declaration, I simply capitalize every letter in the constant name. This naming style really stands out.
