i was just wondering, in a book such as "teach yourself c++ in 21 days"...is it really THAT important to do every excercise faithfully? i''m on about day 12/13 right now and the excercises have been getting VERY tough...very complicated. it''s overwhelming. the answers, however, are in the back of the book. do you think that if i just look at the answers to the examples (making sure i understand them of course) i''ll still pretty much be getting use out of the book? i want to crawl all over her

You know if you''ve learnt sommit or not if you can apply what it''s just shown to something of your own creation. Those books usually have exerices with no answers... just goals. If you can manage them you are probably alright.

I''m a bit skeptical about those learn c++ in 21 days style books... unless they go sufficently into design issues they are teaching a language with no structure. Be sure to check out stuff about design patterns too.
