There is also a great resource on C++ tutorials on Dream.In.Code Tutorials section to understand the basics of the programming language and you can always put up your questions here and you will get expert help. :)

I'm doing the same thing ( I mean trying to learn c++ at home by myself) and I've found the Dummies Desk Reference to be a pretty good place to start out.

I looked at some tutorials here, and on other websites, but I think it's good to have a more structured, foundational development process: learn the basics and then move through the more advanced techniques. That way when you come to some code you can't quite understand, you can look back in the chapter or at previous chapters for the explanation. After that, the tutorials become much more useful, 'cos they address very specific techniques in- depth and I'm able to understand them better.

I've found the dummies guide easy to understand and pretty readable. So far. But this is the only guidebook I've looked at.

Plus, I'm an Postgrad student in English, so I don't feel like I'm learning without having books around me :D.

By the way, what compiler are you using? Dummies uses DevC++, but if you're looking to break out of the console, there are different books on MSVS.

I STRONGLY suggest you get a copy of "C++ Without Fear" great book!
Its really really worth it :)

Also check out cprogramming.com
And we have tutorials here from our experts that we locked in cages...uh i mean...they are writing of their own free will...

Oh, and if you are using windows.....don't. Grab Linux Fedora 8 :) (but thats just my opinion.)

Live long and code strong.

Teach yourself C++ in 21 days is also a good book

Anything by Course Technology is a great read with excellent exercises and tutorials. We used them in my C++ Programming class.

Actually just this weekend I picked it back up and started working the tutorials and exercises because I am ready to hop back into C++.

Also I am reading currently:
A Complete Guide to Programming in C++
by Ulla Kirch-Prinz and Peter Prinz
Jones and Bartlett Publishers 2002

Another informative book.
