Hello, I am currently learning the c++ language and will soon be going to vc++. I have a great book that is all about the c++ language but have a question. Should I be trying to learn the c++ language fully or should I have gotten a book that deals with vc++ and go from there? If I stick with the book I have then I will buy a book that deals with MFC then another one that is about game programing. Is this a good idea? My only concern(other than the price of it all) is that the book I currently have is very confusing.. It deals with every aspect of c++ but do I need to know some of the more obscure items?? Yes I am a newbie and have only been leaning this stuff for 2 days now... although I picked up what I learned extremely quick. If someone has a great website for newbies for me then i''d be greatfull and will never bother you guys again. Also, how did some of you guys learn coding?? Thanks for any responce you give!!

Have you only been learning C++ for 2 days???, MAAN slow down, just take it all in Oh, and learn C++ first, maybe you should of started with C, but thats OK, C++ is fine, just learn it real well, theres almost no difference in Windows(VC++), Not much to memorize. So, just study C++ REEAAL well

Basically all I''m trying to figure out is howlong it took other ppl to learn this stuff without going to school.

Also, I just now found the general posting area and apologize for this being in the wrong area!!

Most book that says ''Learn VC++'' means learning Windows programming in C++ using MFC with VC++.

Learn to speak in C++ first.

It could probably (maybe) took you two weeks or up to a month (or maybe more) to really write a C++ program using classes... not the plain''ol "Hello, world!" program.

Any problem, just post your questions.

How long it took to learn c++ fully? Man, I''ve been programming for five years, and I still find new ways to do things every day

But functional programs in C++ only took a few weeks.

The main thing is try to code. Don't just read it and then let it rotten.

I've programming in C/C++ almost 10 years now.. that's because I learn from sample source codes, not from books. Those days there were very little programming book available here. Until now, I'm still learning. And with Internet, I learn faster. Anyway, I'm a slow learner.

You all are so lucky!
