    Is XCode documented very well anywhere? It doesn't have the easiest to use interface (at least not for someone who is used to using Visual Studio for the past 3 years), and I can't find a good starting place to learn this program.
    Basically, can anyone reccomend a good place to start/a good book to teach me to use XCode/some tips for someone coming from a Visual C++ background?

    I start my Computer Science classes in a semester, so I want to brush up on my skills beforehand (I haven't done any programming since I finished high school).

    There's a lot of official Apple docs for Xcode here. Various Cocoa books will also teach you quite a bit about Xcode, such as Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X by Aaron Hillegas, or Building Cocoa Applications by Simson Garfinkel & Michael K. Mahoney, or Vermont Recipes by Bill Cheeseman. Of course those are all focused on Cocoa and Objective-C programming, and that's what Apple's focus is for Xcode, although you can of course use it for C, C++, Java, and other languages.
