OK, I know enough C programming to get into trouble. Several classes over the years but no employment doing the stuff. So just for fun I thought I'd get this book (see Q title) to try a little Windows programming. The intro says the target audience is at a minimum anyone who can write IF and FOR statements without help, which I can. But this book leaves me so far behind after a while... I make it to chapter 6 and then get completely lost. This has happened three times.
Does anyone know an easier to understand resource or a guide to this guide? I'm not looking to become a hard core pro, I just want to be able to make my way around without being a complete noob.
Thanks for any help.
PS - Yes, I know about Visual Basic and can already use it. This is a learning exercise specific to VC++.
