A lot of people would probably tell you to finish the book, but I say go for it. NeHe's site (nehe.gamedev.net) will work as an effective crash-course in graphics programming, and it'll teach you a few concepts of Windows programming (unless you use GLut).

But I don't know...those "for dummies" books seem like introduction books, so I'd suggest at least *buying* another one for reference -- and don't be afraid to spend money on a big-a book with everything about your chosen language in it (C++), if you can find one with decent reviews and accurate information.

Another thing: programming takes typing. A LOT of typing. The keywords may be short, and you can choose your own variables, but I recommend typing at least a good 60 words/minute with no errors. Because you will type a LOT.


NOTE: What was the "i know we shouldnt worry bout college but we cant help it"? Are you schizophrenic, or...what?


EDIT: O--k...that edit makes everything I just said more-or-less useless. Still, you should read it, because I wrote it, and I are t3h rox. Anyway, try googling blender +tutorial or maya +tutorial.

For Blender, go to www.blender3d.org.
For Maya, go to www.alias.com and break out your checkbook.

I don't know everything about C++ either. The answer is "it depends on what you like to do better". My drawing skills are limited to technical drawing, my sister can't program.
