A year or so back I bought a couple books on programming in C and I had a really hard time grasping the concepts because I just didn't understand the way the books explained it. For a year now I have't really studied anything on programming. I want to start learning C++ this summer but needed some help on what the best book for a person in my situation would be. I was thinking about C++ in 21 days because a friend of mine got it and he learned a lot from it. I was also thinking about shelling over $75.00 for "C++ How to Program" by Paul and Harvey Deitel because I have heard that it was a great recourse. But I am stuck. I am going to Miami-Dade Community College to get an associates in Computer programming before I head of to a university. I wanted to get a head start so I won't be bored over the summer. What do you experts out there reccomend. I am getting kind of discouraged because I want to have a resource that keeps me as interested as I am when learning.
BTW, the book I am talking about can be seen at http:// search.barnesandnoble.com/textbooks/booksearch/ isbninquiry.asp?userid=2B8GVAJH6R&isbn=0130895717
BTW, I'm a friend of elchulo2002, I graduated with him. He might have been important, I don't know, but you know how the whole assosiation thing goes
