http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=133897 look under programing. Also Teach yourself C++ in 21 days by the Sams publishing groups is a good read to get the basics in your mind, then C/C++ programers bible, by jamsa is for better in depth application reference and teaching yourself.

ewwwwwwww sams teach your self theirs better books than that lol deitel and deitel is a good book to start ive had a few friends switch from vb to c++ they havent had to much trouble but they said learning c++ has in creased their vb coding skills no end. but just read as much as you can if you get stuck pm me and ill give you a hand but learn cout and cin first and the different types of variables you can youse then functions etc etc

I would say learn plain C++ first, before getting into the Visual C++ mess that MS created. Do some basic console programming, just to learn the C++ syntax and OO concepts. Then, if you insist, move on to Visual C++, as it adds a lot.
/can you tell I hate MS?

RiOtEr I do agree with you about the deitel c and c++ books. I have used both sam's and deitel and think theirs are much better.
Ben Franklin said it best. \"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.\"

>Hope that helps you.

as mentioned by everyone, Deitel are highly reccomended for any programming book, we've used the deitel series at uni for java ever since they started making them i think, i can only assume that the C++ one is of the same quality as the java one, theyre packed full of tips and little pointers that other books tend to leave out
a good C++ book that i've bought myself is C++ a beginners guide by Herbert Schildt
as the name says it does start from the very basics of programming in C++ (it assumes no C++ background at all), but everything is explained in a very simple way that i find easy to understand, sometimes i need things dumbed down a bit when it comes to coding books and this one i have found to be very good, cost me $55AU so thats probly about 30 US

Learning Visual C++ 6.0 by Ivor Horton is a very good book, teaches you all about just plain C++ and then the second half of the MASSIVE book talks about MFC programming with Visual C++
Never argue with an idiot, they\'ll just bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience
