    The first link seems to be a general introduction to programming, which I guess would be OK, however, the second link is "Mastering Visual Basic 6.0" - hardly at all useful if you want to learn C++.

    Have you considered looking at local colleges/learning centres for C++ evening courses? you should be able to check http://www.learndirect.co.uk and do a search for your area - courses run by Learndirect are generally cheaper too, since they're government backed, rather than run by a private company like ICS. You'd probably have easier access to your tutor aswell (I'm personally not a great fan of distance learning courses, for that reason )

    Whatever you choose to do, I suggest you also set aside £30 or so, to buy yourself a good quality beginner's C++ programming book, to complement whatever you may learn on a course. (the following come highly regarded) :

    visual basic has nothing to do with C/C++. Wikipedia has this
    on the language. Its quite different to C++ which is termed
    a multi-paradigm language featuring Object Orientation and
    generic programming, whereas VB is event driven (mouse clicks
    etc) language.
    No No's:
    fflush (stdin); gets (); void main ();


    Goodies:
    Example of fgets (); The FAQ, C/C++ Reference


    My Gear:
    OS - Windows XP
    IDE - MS Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition


    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI

    Learndirect is the UK govt. organisation for adult learning, and yes they're involved with distance learning aswell as local colleges (they might be involved with ICS too). i suggest you look around the site anyway.
