    alright......

    I've been reading the tutorials but I can't begin to make simple programs because sometimes they give generic examples like arg-type. I just don't know how to fill in the blanks?!?!

    Yes buy a book. If you do a board search you'll find plenty of discussions about the different books.

    Yes, The Sam's Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days is a good starter book, it is what i have used, in fact it is the only one i own that is solely about C++

    I think i know what you're saying, the book gives countless examples of the principles it teaches. Each chapter (day) is very thorough and provides examples on the topic along the way. as well as like, a cumulative program for the end of the day. Like i said it is the only book i own based solely on teaching C++, it covers almost everything. And the nice thing about it is you can skip around to other things that you either need to know immediately or are more interested in (like File I/O doesnt get covered until like day 17). And what you have questions on you just post here on the web and the people are very helpful in solving your problems. I couldn't tell you how many programs they have fixed for me. Good Luck!

    Buy the book in my avatar (C++ Primer Plus, 5th Edition). It should definately fill in any blank spots (it's a very detailed book).

    Is C++ Primer Plus a beginners book? I looked for the other book on gohastings.com which is probably the most likely place for me to buy it but it wont search for c++ it takes them out so I get every book with a c in it......... I search for the entire title and found other Sam's teach yourself books but that one

    C++ primer plus is a good book to have period. If you are just starting out simply start reading at chapter 1 and by the time you are done you will have a sound understanding of the language.
