    Hey,

    I am going to try to learn Visual C++ and hopefully .NET over this summer, and i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on good books for learning Visual C++, especially .NET structure? Also, along with that, what sorts of things should I focus on in Visual C++? It seems like it has alot of parts to it and i'm just not sure where to start. Thanks!

    Nothing beats Bruce Eckel's "Thinking in C++" for understanding and using C++ - i.e. forget books specific to Visual C++ or .Net, and just download the free environments for them and start experimenting with them by writing and debugging small programs to learn how to program and use them.

    I found C++ for Dummies and C++ from the beginning very useful in learning C++, but as lotuseclat said, once you've learnt the basics of C++, the best way to learn is to experiment. It may take a while, but trial and error helps you understand the language better.

    If you're looking for specifics on an enviroment (such as M$ Visual Editor) you can find alot of stuff on their website at MSDN or look at the MSDN library which usually comes with the installer.

    One good book I liked for C++ was Dietel's C++ How to program. Note that this is _not_ their series on Visual Studio (although they aren't bad reads, you probably won't benefit much as said above)

    If you want to start to Basic. I think Balagurusamy is best for basic learning of C++;
