    Well if you have some experience in C++ (I don't know if you know anything about classes and OOP), but you should definitley go out and get The C++ Programming Language by Bjarne Stroustrup. It is the bible of C++.

    considering your level of programming in C++ try these:

    - "Teach Yourself C++ in 21 days" by Liberty.......(a lot of topics and examples, however not so many details)

    - "Practical C++ " by McGregor..... (down to earth explanations)

    - "C++ - The Complete Reference " by Schildt.......(a lot of topics, but explanations aren't always too clear and detailed[more advaced])

    - "The C++ programming Language" by Stroustrup....... (more advanced for your level, however the explanations are more detail oriented).....


    You might want to try your local "Barnes & Nobles" .....

    .... the best way would be to pick cople book at "B&N" sit down and read mayb couple pages or a chapter from each to at least see if they are right for you....

    Good Luck.......

    It assumes that you already know c and teaches you all about oop.
    You can also get the legally get the e-text free.
