    Well, what your asking is a bit general. Do you know anything about classes and objects for example? If you don't then you should look them up. Class/object is the main feature of Object Oriented Programming

    Agreed. I have no Idea what you know about strings, pointers or arrays (Do you know that they are all subsets of each other? Arrays = pointers, Strings = array of chars).

    Do you want more advanced info about them? because really, they are quite basic. If you know what they do and how to use them, then you are better off learning about more of the features of C++ rather then dwelling on what a string and a pointer are/can do.

    As said before, your idea of advanced is most likely not the same as another person's idea of advanced. I found linked lists (doubly, circular, trees) to be a good work out for pointers. But then again I don't know what advanced is in this thread so you may be really good at those.

    No. Arrays are not pointers. It is true that you do get a pointer to the first element of an array if you pass the array, but other than that...
    Strings are not an array of chars (that's C-style string, not a C++ string, which is the default implied in C++.)
