    There's so much info out there. I once purchased a book on Java programming but found myself using online sources when I got hung up in the book--discovered there are several online tutorials. I could have saved myself some money had I just searched Google.

    Try to borrow a copy of Knuth 'The Art of Programming'. I have Vol 1 and it is the best book I ever bought.

    The Art of Programming Vol 1 by Donald E Knuth, which I found out covers topics such as algorithms and some other computer programming and mathematical concepts, after a little research, looks like something I should look into reading when I have mastered the basics of a computer programming.

    Buying a college level books on programming can be very expensive but they most likely delve deeper into programming topics than a free online tutorial does.

    Here is a good resource for learning the C++ language:

    http://www.learncpp.com/

    C++ is a good beginner language but I think it gets a lot more complex as you dig deeper into it.

    I would recommend learning Java or Python as a first computer language because both languages are high level languages and are also object oriented languages, which I think are the easiest types of computer languages to learn.

    How about W3Schools?

    I have heard good things about jQuery which happens to be taught on W3Schools.

    God help us all. People ask whether the world will end with fire or ice. I say with Javascript.

    I have not worked much with JavaScript yet but judging by your post it must be either very difficult or very problematic. I believe that jQuery is supposed to make things easier or less problematic when it comes to coding in JavaScript.
