Pick up a good introductory book such as Accelerated C++ or C++ Primer , but if buying a book isn't an option for you, then check out this full online book:

Teach Yourself C++ in 21 days

BTW, don't be misguided by the title, as it is NOT possible to learn the language in just 21 days, you will need a lot more time.

I agree with aftermath. An actual book is much better to learn from.

I really go against reading online.

I disagree, online tutorials are useful as a supplement to books, and they can solidify the things you learn in books. But I guess you meant that they are not good as a stand-alone resource? Well, I agree in that case.

I just don’t learn very well when I have to stare into the monitor for hours upon hours. Do you feel me?

I jus think that with I book, I can concentrate on actually learning what the author is talking about more. With a monitor, I will have distractions (like my Britney wallpaper, and sutch...) that will take my attention away from the reading material.

Also, reading of a book is easy on the eyes.

Although I found reading from an LCD a lot better than a book! Considering the proper illumination, etc. I would NEVER recommend reading off an old CRT monitor though.. unless you want a headache =]

safari.informit.com <- amazing place where I read over half the books I''ve wanted to.

Including C++ Primer, Modern C++, Exceptional, More Exceptional, 2 Game Design books, Managed DX with Tom Philips, MS CLR unleashed, etc. It''s a great place to either read books online, or print them out. You get a free 14 day subscription and it''s only $15 a month if you want to keep it =]
