I don't really know what's the best way to learn C++. I can only tell you how I learned it. I downloaded a C tutorial in 1998. It took me 30 days (3-4 hours per day) to digest all new features. It was somehow easier for me because at the time I already had some assembly programming knowledge. Then, at the beginning of 1999 I started to read a C++ tutorial. Though I never finished it
. After reading half of that stuff, I got bored
. I thought I had enough knowledge already and started to write simple C/C++ programs. LOL, I still remember how proud I was after modifying a simple helo word program, makeing it display some other text
Anyway if you feel like you could go all the way learning yourself, then do it. But I'd rather suggest taking some programming classes. There's nothing better than competition, exams and deadlines. After all we're only humans.
