i REALLY want to learn c++ and like in the biggginer's article.. i thought it would be easier to learn hands on... and be able to ask questions and all that... how can i find a class.... o ya... i'm 13 yrs old and live in los angeles.... also if there arent any classes i'm more than happy with reading a book or doing a tutporial... there are a lot out there... which are the best for very beginners?

Find class?

At least in my public school [some 10 years ago even] programming courses were offered. Not C++, but most schools have some sort of 'independant study' catch-all which was used in my school for C++ learning [and other things of course].

Don't bother with classes. Just buy a book and read it cover to cover. Type out all the examples in the book. This is the best way to learn. You have the advantage of being young so, if you take it seriously you'll have the heads up on alot of people in the years to come.

I've found I learn better from classes. Learning styles vary from person to person. I have a hard time learning while just reading straight through a book.

I concur strongly with omnibus.

C++ tends to have a good number of gotchas, unwritten rules, and practices that a teacher can show but a [beginners'] book will not. [imo] It is a language that does not lend itself to book learning.
