Hello,
  I am a software engineer who uses VB on a daily basis.  I have also read several books on Visual C++ programming; however, they all seem to lack good instruction on how to use the Integrated Development Environment(IDE).  I am looking for a good means to learn the best ways of debugging, and where the menus are; however, I do not want to pay for an expensive class to have some one show me.  
  Is there a book, or web site which has this material? Points will be awarded for the most helpful response after several people post.

Thanks,
Leo

Book: Debugging C++ by Chris Pappas and William Murray is exactly what you are looking for.

I found the most usefull process to be just playing with the IDE.
I turned the editor compatability to VC++ 2 style so I could have a keystroke to rebuild ALL.

Just play around with the thing.
