C++, now or later?
ok, i was talking to the C++ teacher in my highschool and she said to hold off learning it(im just starting) so i dont develop bad habits. i have to wait till junior year(im a freshman now) and thats a long time. do you think i should continue learning now and hope i dont develop serious bad habits? im learing from deitel & deitels's book "C++ how to program." in this book it describes a lot of errors and bad habits so if i use this book will it keep the bad habits at a minimum?

Nobody develops bad habits from C++.
Do it how you want it.
It is recommended, however, that you continue learning the most loved language by AO'ers.

you only develop bad habits by starting off with 'basic' languages (ie; visual basic - i learnt the hardway). learn c/c++ first and everything else is much simpler.

no time like the present....
that being said, i've never liked anything by deitel & deitels, i've had two java textbooks from them and thought they were awful. i would suggest anything by sams, idg books, or o'reilly.
