    12+ yrs c programming then c++ should be no trouble once you learn to think in objects.

    for starters i like deitel and deitels c++ how to program. This will give you a good overview of the language. Most of it you will already be familiar with or take no time at all to pick up on.

    once you have read that i would move onto maybe bruce eckels excellent volumes thinking in c++. This is available as a free e-book from his website. 2 volumes.

    After that the best books left on just c++ would be anything by scott meyers ( effective c++,more effective c++) or the c++ programming language by bjarne strostroup.(this one is heavy going and not particularly well written but the info is there)
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :-
