Yesterday I started really setting down and learning C++. I actually learned allot and still remember it. I'm using
Beginning Visual C++ 6 by Ivor Horton. (www.wrox.com) I went through 2 chapters last night in the matter of hours.
The first chapter was about the IDE and explained pretty much what c++ was. It explained how to use VC++ and all. The second was all about different variables and how to calculate and get input and post output with cin and cout and what the functions ment.
Basically I'm wondering if its normal to get through that so fast or should I go back through and pretty much memorize everything( I know it and all but sometimes I need a reference back to it). Or am I ok with knowing it to a large extent and move onto the next chapter which would be loops.
It's not like I just scanned through the first 2 chapters. I have 10 different programs based on that. Only 3 of which where from the book and the other 7 I did by myself using what I learned.
Just looking for everyones opinion on this.
Edit- Here is a direct link to the book. it gives an overview about the book and all. http://www.wrox.com/books/0764543881.shtml
