    Question Book on MFC

    Hy everybody! I have a question. I am starting to learn how to use Microsoft Visual C++ and in particular I am trying to understand how MFC calsses work. I was trying to go out there and get a book, but how I found out they not only confusing but many of them also do not have any practical exercises. So if you read and do the examples you realy do not know if you actualy can use it on your own by the end of the chapter. So I was thinking may be somebody can advise me a great book on MFC that actualy explaines things better and has the exercises. There must be at least one out there.
    Thanks for your time.
    Pete

    I'm also searching for books. Not for MFC, but I still think I can share some of the findings.

    From what i've seen there seems to be a general idea that the Wrox books are pretty good. You may want to try www.wrox.com. I'm yet to buy anything C++ from them, but I can say that their ASP/XML/XSLT books rock. I can only hope the same applies to C/C++.

    Visual C++ Bible 6.0 is a great bok to learn MFC. As for Win32 API, I reccommend Petzolds newest programming windows book. (I think it's v5 or so)

    Hey mario I just got a book from wrox, it is Ivor Horton's Beginning Visual C++ 6. It goes over MFC classes as you go along and do the exercises. It doesn't go too fast and it explains things quite well. I think it is a good book.

    I've seen Ivor Horton being mentioned a lot of times both here and on some other places. I will place that book on my wish list. Thanks for sharing
