    I'm currently learning Objective-C from Knaster's "Learn Objective-C on the Mac." I find that the majority of my learning comes from working out problems which this book does not contain. Does anyone know of sites with exercises and answers which I could go through as I feel I would have a hard time applying what I read without taking the time to really try and work out a program on my own.

    This might be of interest: http://www.cocoadev.com/index.pl?NewbieProjectIdeas

    Edit: it's not exercises with solutions, but it's a list of ideas to try creating. Often with programming once you learn the basics, it's best to just dive in and try writing a program. Along the way you'll need to figure out new things, and so it'll train you for more real-world thinking and problem solving.

    Objective-C is a superset of C, meaning it can do everything C can and more. Think of it as a layer on top of the C language. C++ is a different language (but also based on C).
