I know a lot of people probably ask this, but after searching I couldn't see any definite thread.
So my question is, which is best to start C++ or visual. I think I read somewhere that it was best to get used to C++ before moving on but is this really neccessary, if my aim is to move on would it not be easier to learn visual from the off?
Having been looking at various books etc I had decided to go with "Primer Plus" if C++ is the best route, but I can't say I have found a similarly reputed title in Visual, would "Visual C# 2005 Step by Step" be a deacent purchase?
Cheers for any input.
