All the programming that I know and all what I am able to do is what I have read from the books for beginners. Recently I have started to read a book for intermediate and advanced techniques of programming in PHP and I have realized that, even if I understand, I won't be able to create similar codes with those by my own.
Also, I am trying to solve and the intermediate problems in C++, but I realize that I am not even able to think about a way to solve or ideas simply don't want to come. I know...it's all about mastering the concept...but how to master a concept if you didn't find till then a clear explanation for it ?
My question is : should I restart reading books for beginners and then start making problems from the easiest to the most difficult or to look for a good teacher which is able to explain me and show me what to do ?
Or what would you recommend in a situation like this for a guy looking for a job in automatics (control engineering) or research using programming and computer technology ? I have two more years and I finish high-school
And I wouldn't have put this question if programming hadn't been a passion of mine.
