In Topic: Is this normal?

This is entirely normal, and something you will experience again and again throughout your programming career as you discover new concepts over time.

Especially when you are starting out and inexperienced, it can be very difficult to understand the "why" of certain things, or the bigger-picture concepts of how to use those things. Give it time and keep practicing, and you'll start seeing areas where things "itch" - you can't quite say why, but you know there has to be a better way to do things. Pay attention to those itches - they are usually a sign that you are ready to learn a new concept.

Ok thank you. I assumed it was normal, but I just wanted to make sure. Thanks for the posts guys makes me feel a bit better as I was kinda going "crap I don't know how I would use this yet xD".

Anyway I am learning from C++ sams teach yourself one hour a day and these youtube videos: http://thenewboston.org/list.php?cat=16

I really like the way he explains everything, makes it all make since and really like him, glad I found out about those videos before I started learning as he's a great teacher :P.

Well my question in general is, is it normal for me not to understand how to like make a program with it even though I know how to make one, and understand what it is, just not how to use it.

Ok thank you. I always feel like I am cheating when I need to look something up for some reason after I read it a few times to try and memorize it. Thanks!

Thanks for the respones guys! I have another question.

Since beginning how much should I try to do a day in terms of learning. I don't want to over do it and confuse myself, but I also want to do the most I can in terms of learning the language most effeciently. Any advice on how I should go about learning in terms when doing books and tutorials (I already have both).
