    I've told him as much. Imagine if he took some advice and actually read a book. Please nobody tell him the secret to prgramming...if it ever gets out we are all doomed.

    Lol, yes, I do think that a good book and patience would do him wonders.

    fist of all I can't read books s don't owrry. (I can't consentrate long enof. and I don't got enof patients to read something like that).

    And the secreet would be to have a teacher, like at school, teach you and you go really fast that way.

    Then programming probably isn't for you. I find that the majority of my time is spent reading (code, documentation, etc.) with a very small amount of actual code monkeying. If you don't have the patience to read a book on programming then you certainly won't have the patience to write and debug programs.

    >And the secreet would be to have a teacher, like at school, teach you and you go really fast that way.
    Most teachers lack the knowledge necessary to properly teach. Not only do they need to know the language inside and out and the correct way to use it, they also need to know a great deal about programming concepts, far more than a working programmer because they'll encounter obscure issues with greater frequency. They need to be accurate at eyeball debugging and able to recognize a large number of common mistakes. And most importantly, they need the ability to communicate this knowledge to novices. If one way of explaining doesn't work, they need to switch gears and explain another way until the student gets it.

    In my opinion, teachers should be experts in all areas that their teaching touches on for them to be effective. I find it unfortunate that teachers tend to be beginners themselves.

    lol that they you tink but I think a c++ teacher that only taught c++ would be good. And I guess I could read a book that is 100 pages long in about 5 days. Or if I didn't play
    Halo PC/CE/xbox anbd I was bored I could do it in a couple of days. But I am getting ready to quit c++ for a while sence school startrs in 2 days. After a while I will start learning it on the weekends maybe.

    C++ is a complex language. Naturally I wouldn't expect any teacher to know it inside and out when I'm of the opinion that nobody in the world knows everything about C++. I would expect them to know the common features inside and out, and I would expect them to know what is correct and what isn't (so many teachers insist on having main return void), and I would expect them to be intimate with how to use the language properly. Just about every teacher I've met that specializes in C++ fails all of those prerequisites.
