It is generally *not* recommended to learn C followed by C++ due to the different programming paradigms (multi-paradigm vs imperative). If you wish to study C++, then get Accelerated C++ (book) and get reading. You will become familiar with C's stdlib over time.

You appear to be confused. Visual C++ can either refer to a C++ implementation (Microsoft's) or an IDE. Maybe what you meant to say is that you have used some C++ implementation such as GCC, and would like to try one of Microsoft's instead.
