I recently purchased Beginning C++ Game Programming by Michael Dawson. It has been nearly a month and im a complete beginner. This book was supposed to be my first start. I've followed the book closely and I think I have the basics figured out. It would help if anyone could tell me where to go on from here. I want to learn game programming so if anyone can tell me where to go from here then id be grateful. Oh yeah im 15 years old as of yesterday. Dont know if that's relevant but i'd appreciate a comprehensive book or resource or atleast a guideline where to go on.

You could first start making some text-based games. Try making tic-tac-toe, hangman, guess the number, or even a small text-based adventure game.

All that was in the book. I also followed exercises for improvement in them.
I want to get advanced and learn more but with game development in view.

You could try learning some graphics programming. I recommend SDL, a simple cross-platform multimedia library with 2D graphics and sound that's simple and easy to use. You could also learn OpenGL, which is a cross-platform graphics API, but it's also a great start and it supports 3D graphics if you choose to stick with it. DirectX is also an option if you choose to stick with Windows.
