    Thanks.
    I think the most important thing you can do is practice each chapter with what you learned. Usually it builds from each chapter, if they have exercises DO THEM as you will get more out of it then just ONLY reading.

    If you only read then you will be

    omg is it just me or did no one suggest nehe?
    nehe.gamedev.net

    i'm sure all this hoo haa about 'what is the perfect book to get' and 'what is the best resource' may seem intimidating to you if you are just starting out. I don't believe any resource is really any better than any other, because in the end it is what you make of it. get some book, start fooling around with code from the book, ask questions on these boards (also ask questions on gamedev.net's forums), keep doing that

    and don't try to compare your skill level to that of other programmers, biggest mistake any programmer can make.
