    Taking my programming knowledge farther

    Right now I feel at homw with all the core C++ stuff.

    syntax, variables, functions, multiple files, custom headers, classes, pointers, etc...

    Im good with linked lists and the like now, so I am wondedring what I should learn next.

    I want to become a professionall game programmer one day.

    I know little about databases beyond theory, should I work on that? What are some good books/sites that I should read?

    Either learn DirectX, learn more on the database subject, or do whatever you feel like.

    So, do those. But I would recommend learning Direct X over the summer.

    Learn how to design with UML and a visual modeling process. Game developers work on a SDLC, and so does every programming team that is sucessful.
