Well, I'm currently in Iraq, i brought with me sams teach yourself C++ in 24 hours and Sam's teach yourself windows programing in 21 days. I am a fan of Sams' they taught me everything from the ground up on computers and networking, now I am moving on to C++. I cannot physically see the book i'm about to order, so i'm on books a million to have them send it to me out here. We are talking a 20 dollar difference in the primer books. If i already have sams so I need primer? i have a basic understanding of C++ but need something a little more clearer on certain aspects. I took an online class and was only able to do 4 weeks of it, but was able to make a pong clone that wasn't half bad using a preconstructed window so I actually only learned how to program using that window. I havn't spent much time on C++ since oct, so I'll prob be starting from scratch again. I'll look intot he book you mentioned, thanks

I can't recommend Bruce Eckel's Thinking in C++ enough. It's a fantastic book for really understanding how things are done in C++, instead of teaching C with some extra keywords.

Best of all, it's a free download. They have a dead tree edition as well, if you need it.
