    I found this AFTER I bought the book ($ 30 )

    you know, I never have read a C++ book in my life. I've learned EVERYTHING I know from various websites and trying stuff out.

    I never say "I don't know how to do that". Because if I do, I always work at it until I DO know how. I have done things for weeks at a time, just to figure one little problem that I need to change. Then POOF! I got it.

    So that means I'll NEVER say I don't know how to do 3D Polygonal Programming. That's one I'll NEVER get done.

    um...how exactly does that help bobish?
    unless you have advice don't go making yourself out to be some guru. And if that was advice you obviously haven't been reading the other posts, bobish has expicitly mentioned not being able to do that.

    man Ive already read sams and I have thinking C++ but havent read it. Anyway mabey I take a look at it now. One thing is I like to have a book which is entertaining enough that I can read it while barly awake, without putting it down in a few minuets.

    Well the best way to approach learning programming is to study the theory, but also to practice the concepts you've learnt. It's hard to understand some things until you actually see them working (e.g. - pointers).

    I had found a free book (Sams Teachyourself C++ In 21 Days) on the net but I formatted the computer and didn't save the favourites. Can somebody remind me? Thank
