    Depends what you what to do, you can use classes without pointers and pointers without classes, although it'd best to know about both.

    Doesn't matter. They can act independent of each other, however, often they are incorporated into the learning process at the same time.

    I would recommend you at least have a general understanding of both. What you choose to study first is up to you, though.

    Alright thanks alot guys.

    Some places introduced pointers first and some of my books introduced classes first so i wasn't really sure which i should start with.

    Thanks for the replies.
