Download the free "Thinking in C++" and send me the $1000. Done.
I also recommend the book "Problem Solving, Abstraction, & Design Using C++"
by Frank Friedman and Elliot Koffman. Deduct it's price from my $1000. ::))

For standard, generic C++, try Koenig and Moo's "Accelerated C++".
- Target is VisualC++ for win32 development


You'd best ask about that in a Windows-specific group, e.g. one of the
comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.* or microsoft.public.vc.* groups.

Take the following classes at your local university (non degree seeking):

-Intro to computer science (make sure they use C++) and
-Data Structures (in that order)

Since you have some experience with C, I am sure you can get the hang of
these two, and for me this is the next logical step. I may be wrong with the
choice for you, but you cannot lose by stopping by at a university and
talking to an advisor (or even email them) at the Computer
Engineering/Science department. It is very likely that hey will help you
there.

Hope this helps.

It is good to have several books available when you study
a new programming language. What you cannot find in some book,
can usually be found in some other book. One of your books
could be an easy C++ book, and I have such a book available
in address

http://www.naturalprogramming.com/cppbook.html

The book is being printed in Canada, and you can get it only
by ordering it from the Internet.

Remember that the price of a single book is usually less than
the price of a programmer's working hour.
