that is very powerful for typos, error handing, and what ever other abilities would be useful to a C++ beginner also i don't care how long the list of books i want to know all the ins and outs to C++ i want to KNOW everything. also to make a long story short friends wants were getting longer and more demanding and i don't think panda 3d would be able to full fill there wants so i went with a C++ engine.

I started with Beginning C++ game programming, currently reading Thinking in C++ and when I finish it I'll read Thinking in C++ volume 2. You can start with thinking in C++ but it requires a bit of C knowledge.

Be wary of learning by reading source code. Not all code is good code, and you definitely should never look at professional game source and say "Oh, this must be a good way to do it."

Well for books Thinking in C++ (1 and 2) are great once you have a basic knowledge. I personally used Sams Learn C++ in 21 Days. It was alright for learning it, but I'm sure there are better books to learn from.
www.cplusplus.com is a great reference for the standard library and such. Again, this is probably better for when you at least have the basics down.

yeah this is true plan to get a good under standing on the basics

also a sub noob question is C++ a more powerful language to use and what i mean is can you do more with it why i say this is because this engine

http://www.3dgamestudio.com/

seems to be pretty reasonable i am sure there is better but i would like to think this would be a good beginning point with its abilities some of it i under stand and some of it i still have yet to know what it does.

but it has a very some what long list for abilities and to be more honest i would not mind sticking with these guys ether i think for each time they pass a version there engine just gets more powerful but am i a fool in this thinking?
