More C++ Resources...

by jbelina In reply to C(++) Home - Schooling, a ...

For some more resources on learning Visual C++, check out (they have free books online including the QUE Special Edition Using Visual C++ 6) and (where they have free training in Visual C++).

You might also wantto check out the MS Press book that comes with a Visual C++ compiler which is "Microsoft? Visual C++? 6.0 Deluxe Learning Edition", check out and you should be able to get it for around $100...

You also might consider one of the free C++ compilers if you are looking to learn C++ itself, and not necessarily Microsoft's Visual C++.

Good Luck!

There are a lot of good options out there. There are many books you could purchase and there is a lot of free information on the web. But whatever you do you'll need to pick up a copy of C++ to practice with. Any variety will do. If you live near a large college, check out their bookstore for an academic version.
