I'm just having a hard time understanding the syntax of C++. The book(How to program C++ (fifth edition), by Deitel & Deitel) that my school recommended is impossible for me to understand of what is going on. Can anyone offer any advice or suggestion in making the learning curve of C++ easier? Is there any hope for me learning or am i doomed? Thx!!

As all my mates said, we were in same situation and that book you mentioned is totally crap.
