    Always initialize your variables when you create them.

    Use descriptive - meaningful variable names.

    1 int counter = 0;
    2 int checker = 0;
    3 float tester = 0.0;


    Always prototype your functions before use.

    Design your functions to do one thing well.

    Practice "KISS" (Keep It Simple Silly).


    You can also pick up a book about C++
    Like :
    Accelerated C++.
    Also
    Ivor Horton's Beginning Visual C++ 2010 (Wrox Programmer to Programmer)

    also, some websites to help are cplusplus and cprogramming
    And also, make sure to not rush it, it will take a while

    hope I helped, good luck and have fun

    Learn C++

    This helps a lot, also taking a programming class won't hurt.

    I started from nothing and went straight into c++. Its a little bit harder but its doable.

    And for what :\ It's not like you lose anything if you learn an easier language first.

    C# is not too bad but I'd go for python as the starting language :P
