    Awwww, be nice. This board is here to help (though granted, here to help people who have already done their homework).

    Yes, get a book, though I have never had much success learning to program from books. Too far away from the computer.

    This is a good place to start. Check the boards and see how other people write code. Also, do a search under google:

    www.google.com

    For C++ tutorials. You'll find millions of them. Do the exercizes you find, write simple stuff of your own devising.

    Try "Sam's Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days". That's where I started... It teaches the basics really well, especially if you have the patience to read the whole book . The only real problem is that it doesn't have anything on graphics (well, MAYBE a little bit... I never found out, because I was too involved with other stuff.), which is the main interest of a lot of people. It teaches a lot about how the memory and stuff works though, if you really want to know.

    Otherwise, if you decide to save the 45-60 dollars (that's Canadian by the way), go with the online stuff.
    Just Google It. √
