What do you mean by "learning visual c++"? Visual C++ is an IDE and compiler. Do you mean you want to learn to use the IDE? Or do you mean you want to learn the Microsoft specific technologies such as the Win32 API, MFC, COM, ATL, etc, etc?

I haven''t read any books which specifically teach using Visual C++, but for the other things I mentioned I like the following books:

Win32: Programming Windows by Charles Petzold.
MFC: Programming Windows with MFC by Jeff Prosise.
COM: Inside COM by Dale Rogers and Essential Com by Don Box.
ATL: Inside ATL by Shepherd and King.

Don''t know. I would imagine you would find it more useful than me. I actually have a copy I got for free lying around somewhere, but I''ve never even opened it.
