Asking for support to learn C++ on my own

Posted 10 November 2010 - 10:01 AM

Hello, my name is Richard and this is my first post. I've been learning C++ for the past month and I've managed to learn as much as a friend who's had a semester of C++ in college. As for myself, I've been learning on my own and know the basics like headers, functions, ect. but I don't know what I should learn next as far as c++. What I'm asking for is any advice on where and what and how to learn whatever comes after the basics.

Any help is much apreciated.

Could always try and find a good ebook.

Few I've found useful are.

Ivor Horton's Beginning Visual C++ 2010 (Wrox Programmer to Programmer)

C++ Demystified - A Self Teaching Guide (2004).chm

34$ is pretty cheap, But you can get it elsewhere too as well.


The post above works too, but the best way is to find a way to apply learning code to doing something that you do a lot.
