I am starting my first year of college classes next week with an intended entry into a computer science major. I am most proficient in Java and PHP, and understand that C++ and the former are vastly different.
In doing some research, I have found that my professor for this class is a bit quirky and is quite ineffective at teaching the language. As such, I want to get a small head start on getting familiar with the language. I have always been interested in working with C or C++, and school finally has given me my excuse to actually work with it.
I was wondering if anyone could recommend some good tutorials and such given my background in higher level programming languages.
