Oh ye posters of this forum, please have pity on this helpless newbie.
/sigh, I hate posting these "I'm new threads" but I guess i better do so because I have a feeling im going to post here for a while.

Anyway, I'm 16 and I'm just starting to learn C++, I got into programing because (this is going to be a shocker) I found out I could get the computer to do my homework for me. (What? Expecting "to make my own games" a reason?) I found out with my TI83 calculator that I could program it to save me precious time on my algebra and physics homework. (Both teachers allow me to use these programs for homework yet clear mem for tests so its legal) Starting from this I got into trying to learn C++ because I wanted something a bit more powerfull. Anyway, none of that information really matters but I thought I should have shared it with you guys anyway.
I have been on the tutorial for 5 days now and I still don't quite understand some concepts like classes and arrays. After doing the challenges I still dont understand how to use it in coding. Is there another good tutorial with good examples and "projects" for learning? Please don't tell me to get a book, I'm preaty cheep and the only book I have on C++ is one from like the late 80s called OOP in C++ by David Hu. It mostly deals with why C++ is better than smalltalk and is REALLY outdated. (My school's tech department was giving away old computer parts and old computer books when the updated thier systems so thats how I got it)
So anyway, if you guys can give me some advice or other tutorials that would be nice. Thank you :-)
