"C++ From Control Structures Through Objects, 8th Ed." by Tony Gaddis is what we used in fundamentals and OOP. It is very thorough and easy to understand in my opinion.
Additionally, http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/ is an excellent resource for both programming reference as well as basic tutorials. It covers all of the built in libraries and their functions, types, constants, etc.
I'm not sure how fluent you are with programming languages, but be sure to practice with 3rd party libraries. SFML is a good one to start with - very simple to work with once you get a good understanding of C++.

To learn modern C++, you should be using a modern textbook.
Also, cppreference.com tends to be far more thorough and detailed on standard libraries and modern C++ features. It is a better resource nine times out of ten.
