I am about to start college and one of my first classes is a general programming class which focuses on C++. I have done some Visual Basic programming how much more difficult is it than it? Also what do you think the learning curve would be for someone to get decent?

I did some VB in highschool too (VERY elementary drag and drop) and had to learn java then c++ in univ. I have to say you need a completely different mindset when dealing with c++. You'll get to see a lot of what's really going on with the memory when you declare something.. and how hard it is to create a button when you've taken it for granted in VB. (however, I don't think you'll get to any graphical stuff soon)

I'd say if you have a good prof, it can be very fun and enlightening. On the other hand, a bad prof can ruin it all for you.

if you use MFC, it can be similar to VB, (MSVC 6.0).

well, i leanred C/C++ from the worst ever tutor...it can be ahrd to start with but once you know C, every other programming language looks exactly thes same and learning any type of programming just becomes the same with different syntax.

with C/C++ you will become amazed at how everything suddenly makes sense as soon as you get to grips with the basic usage of the language.
