I managed to get the following books.
C++ Interactive Course
Waite Group's Object-Oriented Programming in C++, Third Edition
Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days, Third Edition
The C++ Programming Language
They can be found @ http://www.syndik.at/harald/regal/buecher/login_e.asp
I'd like to first learn C++ and then Windows Programming.
Finally, I'm gonna learn Direct X. I got a copy of WINDOWS GAME PROGRAMMING FOR DUMMIES.
From the above titles, what do you suggest I start with?
