Great textbook to start learning Visual C++

I've been programming with VB/ASP for more than a year, now I need to learn Visual C++ to code things can't be done with VB.
I believe this is a very good book for all levels, even if you never programmed before. Each chapter provides code examples, and explain in detail how it works, and/or why it does not work. unlike Microsoft mastering series that I have an online version, which just fly through all the topics, good for code sample or reference, not learning. Before, whenever I saw some window C++ code, I always got overwhelmed, but this book explains code in detail, as well as necessary background information.
After read each chapter, I disipline myself to do all the exercises, then compare with the answers to ensure I understand that chapter. For me, the best way to learn is by coding. The exercises and answers are the best part of the book.
great learning book. Highly recommand it.

Not worth the money

The book is just plain horrible! It assumes WAY TOO MUCH! I am learning VB6 in school and this is the book that they are teaching us from. Many times throughout the book they give program examples using things that haven't even been covered yet. The exercises at the end of the chapters are very vague. The choice of color also is bad (brownish/red text) and makes for a poor reading experience. The tips and common programming errors sprinkled throughtout the chapters become annoying very quickly. My advice, pass on this one.

Title: The Mixing Engineer's Handbook (Mix Pro Audio Series)
Publisher: Artistpro
Authors: Bobby Owsinski
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Pretty good "conceptual" material.

This book has 2 parts.
One for mixing basics and things treated with half deepness in the matter. No math, which lacks in an engineer's handbook, since this increase the deepness. No precise algorithms at all, even lots of general ideas. Has good glosary, and decay time charts, wich are usefull. 2 half, comments of people at business about specific questions, some with the vaguest answers you can spect. The total book is a review of all the autor knows and don't want to tell. All the time say what you should do, but not how, and ending everything with "...anyway, there's not rules about it, you can check othere ways...", so, or is sometimes vague, or is extremely encouraging 'till the point it's all up to you. Big problem: doesn't say what you should do, even it seems it does, naming lots of hits and the people beind them. This book Is Very informative, but Never is a handbook about mixing. If you want something more detailed, with more substance and less chit-chat, go for "...a visual guide of mixing..." also by Owsinsky, most of all in the " Stereo Imaging" which is a sacred grial of all the sound research. The book is also pretty honest, and say things other don't, so, it's a must, but never your only and first resource. If I'd loose it, I'll buy it again.
