    About to get back into school from my co-op term. Need to refresh my memory on C++ (and refresh basically mean learn again since I got like 57% the first time around). I don't need to retake the course but it is a pre-req for another course meaning I would be expected to how know to program in C++/C ...any online site that people have used that is really good?

    I am not much of a C? programmer (for some reason I went with ASM) but I quite liked http://www.cprogramming.com/ as a crash course from a partway knowledgeable background)

    When returning to programming I and a many friends have found that if you make sure you have data manipulation (writing a hash generator or some basic (de)compression routines (either your own or a common routine: LZ, RLE etc) is a good one), file i/o stuff (open, alter, save sort of thing) and some basic mathematical/boolean logic stuff (include a GUI should you need to do that sort of thing and maybe link it with the previous two) all on lock then anything that comes your way should be doable.

    Taking someone elses simple app or a section thereof and doing it your own way (or simply optimising it if you do not have time) makes for a resonable practise session as well.
