I've taken a class in C++ and we used Bjarne Stroustrup's Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++. We only got to the point to where we were just starting to learn about pointers, so I still consider myself a beginner. C++ is my first programming language. I really like how Bjarne covers a lot of stuff in this book, I just hate how he'll randomly throw functions in that I don't know of without explaining them. It makes it hard to follow along. Does anyone have any recommendations?
