I would like to learn Visual C++ but I do not know where to start.

Please recommend books and website that teach and train a person to get familiar with Visual C++ 6.0, so that I can get to learn it fast.

Please also recommend the sites that teaches Visual InterDev also. Thank you.

Before you can learn VC++ you have to know C++, and maybe C. www.amazon.com has tons of books on the subject, but I would not buy anything older the 1998 so that you can learn about stl. Then you need a book about the MFC. I agree with expertmb Inside VC++ by David is very good. Then you should read a book about the WinAPI, mainly because lots of computer books on apis use the winapi. I like Programing Windows 95 second ed a lot. For a really good programing web site, www.msdn.com wins. I has programming books online, downloads, and online chats now and then.

Microsoft's "Mastering" series tutorial software is very good.  "Mastering MFC" is a good place to start if you have an understanding of C++.

Can you please specify books for each item that you mentioned? Or at least the website.

THe thing that you mention really meets what I intend to learn. And I know C++ well, is just that I want to start learning VC++. I hope you can further recommend some book or site for MFC, WINAPI,and others that you had proposed.

Thank you very much...! Hope to hear from you soon
