c++ and visual c++ 6.0

I'm a computer user with absolutely no programming experience and I just bought Sams learn Visual C++ in 24 hours with CD-ROM included. What do I need to know about c++ and visual C++...are they the same language?

C++ is an ANSI standardized programming language.  Visual C++ is a Microsoft product which is a (mostly) ANSI standard compliant C++ compiler and development environment.

C++ is the language, VC++ is a commercial product.
