I would also recommend starting with a book. Before going into structure I would start out with the more fundemental differences between Java and C++. I don't know about Visual Studio but usually (as opposed to Java) there is (intentionally) no garbage collector implemented so you will have to deal with potential memory leaks and general memory handling. You should also get a good understanding of pointers and references in C++ (especially when it comes to optimizing performance) and also features like operator overloading and operators in general.

If you dive into coding right away without a good understanding about how C++ works you will find yourself lost at many points because it's much easier to "break stuff" with C++ than it is with Java.
