Just signed my paperwork on a software engineer position...it's my first real development job and its for a Fortune 500 w/ heavy Microsoft product leanings. I have virtually no experience w/ C#, Visual C++, VB, or real Microsoft based development (Maybe that's why I didn't get the MS SDE job). My experience in Visual Studio is mostly limited to C and mostly for console based projects and openGL rather than anything using the visual environments. I do have solid experience developing Visual Java projects in Eclipse, C, relational databases, and lots of OO software design education but I need some good book suggestions to get me started in VC++ before I start so I don't get my ass fired before I can get going. They do know I'm limited in my experience but I think my college pedigrees made them take the gamble so I'm going to do everything I can to make sure I live up to what they're paying me. I start in 10 days part-time before going full time when I graduate in Aug so time is a factor. Any help is appreciated.
