I learned to type in school on huge Underwood manual typewriters. (I was the
only boy in the high school typing class; I thought it would be a good skill to
learn. Obviously, I was right.)
My ex-father in law had been in the Army during the Korean War. He came home
with one piece of advice. "Kid, learn to type. In the Army, a man who can
type is too valuable to risk being killed."
-there are online courses and how-to books. I liked the SAMS one. Pick one and run with it.
-Get Eclipse C/C++ IDE. It will hold your hand and help you avoid stupid syntax errors till you get a feel for the language.
-work hard and don't give up!
Things that are spectacularly important:
-read and learn about the compiling and linking processes. Know the differences and what messages relate to which one.
-get a grip on pointers! Pointers and indexes from pointers are the root of most bugs.
