    Well, I would definately recomend C++. The reason is that C++ is just more challeging and the fact that you can do almst anything with it.

    Java on the other hand....I'ts a nice language, easy to use. Everything is done for you. A window is created, the mouse is initialised ect ect... That is something that is always welcome. But then again, Visual C++ also does that.

    C++ is multiplaform and multidimention and are used just almost all areas of software design including hardware devices. Java programmers will argue that Java is used for more than just simple web server based applications. Nonetheless, I have not played a real commercial game done in Java. I have never used a word processor or an image editor done in Java.

    Deitel & Deitel publish excellent all-around C++ books.

    Deitel and deitel is a fair book. It will teach you the syntax and some very common pitfalls to avoid but on the whole it is very limited with the more important subjects like exception handling and STL only barely glossed over. This is only an introductory level book.
    For a more in-depth look at c++ try bjarne stroustrups book " the c++ programming language".
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi
