I suggest using the book Accelerated C++ by Koenig and Moo

It actually teaches C++, as apposed to books like Deitel and Deitel 
which teach you C with some C++ thrown in.

http://www.accu.org/ is a great place to read book reviews about various 
programming languages.

If you are making gui programs, you may also want to look at things like 
the various tutorials for QT or GTK.
