I read the complete instructors notes this morning. I have covered all the basics of C++. This has just made me even more interested in learning C++. I think I'll read C++ Primer Thrid Edition. But now I have Petzold 'Programming Windows'! Not only this, but I have not completed 'Accelerated C++'. I only read half of it before I was inturrupted by school. This is bloody sick. The fact is that it's difficult to learn the things you want to learn when you are in College. Now I work 44 hrs a week and go to College as a 3/4 time student. How the hell am I going to work on my novel?
