c++ learning

I can recommend a very cheap, yet very useful book called "C++ in Easy Steps" by Mike McGrath. It can be had for $10 and is totally worth it. The source code from the book can be run off the Dev-C++, so that makes it perfect for beginners. There is one catch though. The only place you can buy it is from Barnes and Noble Booksellers. But those are everywhere, so it shouldn't be a problem. And if worse comes to worst, just get it offline. But i can totally vouch for the quality and price of this awesome book.

I recomend C++ Primer Plus becuz that is what i am reading right now. the only problem i see with it is that it is long! but i am on chapter 6 right now and the programmming exercises acsully make you think. i also recomend with this book is the download MIRC client and goto #gamedev becuz you will need help with those exercises and the guys there are cool with helping you through them.

does "Beginning C++ Game Programming" work well with dev c++? Becuase i know that every compiler is a little different. Becuase i don't think the same code always works with other compilers does it? I also have the microsoft visual basic 6.0 compiler that i used a bit. I have the book sams teach yourself in 21 days but it doesn't go to much detail about arrays and data types and stuff like that. I want something kinndof like the book for visual basic i use at school. Its like microsoft visual basic its white. I really like that kind of book would b helpful. It has like lessons then exercises you have to apply what you learned. Well "Beginning C++ Game Programming" looks great but does it work well with dev c++?
