    You probably need to get a book soon, maybe a copy of the standard too.

    Besides reading, writing code is an essential part of learning.

    You could take a class... maybe at a community college. That's probably the best way, especially if C++ is your first programming language. A class will give you structure, feedback, an instructor that can answer questions, other students to work with and learn from, etc.

    Also, in a beginning programming class you should learn some things about computer programming in general, where-as most books just jump into the language. (I've never taken a C or C++ class, but I have had classes in other programing languages.)

    If you can't take a class, get a book (or a few books books ).You can find a couple of good beginning books in the book recommendations post. A good beginning book will essentially cover the same topics as the tutorial, but with much more depth, detail, and explanation. For example, Accelerated C++ is about 350 pages, and Teach Yourself C++ In 21 Days is about 750 pages.
