    C++ 10 years ago and C++ today are two different (*radically*
    different) programming languages... Almost as different as
    C and Java.

    So, my advice is that you pick up a book such as "Accelerated
    C++", which even though starts from the very beginning, it
    has emphasis on the "modern" C++ language.

    I can offer you to read a couple of tutorials that I wrote
    myself, to help my students given the lack of books that teach
    C++ the right way: (arrays)

    A slightly more advanced one, for the STL:
