If you're looking for a good old-fashioned tutorial of Visual C++, this introduction of over 1,000 pages may be the answer. There is no glitzy presentation or witty humor here--just tons of useful information on everything from the basics of C++ syntax to designing ActiveX controls for Web pages.
Although the author of this massive reference book says it is aimed at both those with some programming expertise as well as total novices, it is most suitable for readers who understand at least the basics of programming. Beginning Visual C++ 5 covers the material in a traditional, step-by-step approach, building your knowledge along the way. Each of the 22 chapters starts with the big picture--writing Windows applications--and an overview of the Visual C++ development interface. The author then moves through data types, variables, loops, and more complex structures. Next, Beginning Visual C++ 5 provides a step-by-step introduction to object-oriented programming (OOP) and how it relates to Windows. Finally, the book presents advanced topics such as writing dynamic-link libraries (DLLs) and ActiveX controls.
At the end of each chapter, the author summarizes all covered topics and provides one or more textbook-style exercises for you to try. He also gives you the answers to the exercises in one of the book's three appendices. Whether you're building on some basic programming experience or just want a refresher reference on Visual C++ for your shelf, this is a good choice. [via]
