Now your onto windows programming

Windows Programming from the Ground Up is a good book.

Good luck.

Game programming, you can get lost in number of books on it. You can get go with directx, you can get graphics and sound add-ons or you can go with engines.

PS I am looking or a programmer. At the moment I am using The Game factory - an engine.
