SL Intro to C++
#1
I'm getting ready to start C++ next week. Searching on the forum wasn't helpful, so asking here: for those who have taken it, how was it? Was it difficult? How long did it take you? Did you need a compiler, and which one did you use? 

As someone with no programming background or experience I'm a little intimidated with this course, but who knows, maybe I'll end up enjoying it??

You do need a compiler. Study time will vary greatly as I think others started this course w/ programming experience. Don't be afraid learning something new, doing the projects will open your eyes to programming and problem solving.

Without some background in programming, you will probably struggle with the assignments for the C++ course since it doesn't do a great job of explaining the logic behind some of the tasks.

As with all programming, the way to get through it is to practice. Some people found that taking a free online Java, C, or C++ course (or following some online C++ lessons to get more hands-on experience in programming) prior to starting the C++ course to be helpful.

I haven't done that course, but I know some basic C++       
I think these videos are pretty good
