Hi all,

I'm new here. Hello! I am a new comp. sci major and am required to take a beginning course which we learn c++. So far I've been hanging in, but I don't have the greatest teacher to learn from. I've had no formal programming language training. I've actually been learning more by watching Harvard lectures on academicearth.org. I have the Savitch Absolute C++ (3rd edition) along with my professor's course reader which is terrible.. The Savitch book is alright, but I'd prefer a more of a beginner type book. I downloaded the ebook (Learn c++ in 21 days).. So far I enjoy it even though I'm only on the 2nd chapter.

What sources would you all recommend to a beginner in c++? I'd appreciate any suggestions you may have as I'm genuinely interested in learning it, but want to learn it right the first time.

I've been using M$ Visual Studio Express 2005 for my IDE.
