A decent school will start you with C as an introduction to programming 
then teach you basic C++ (you write your own abstract data types).

For a teach-yourself strategy that sounds reasonable.

Just remember that studying from computer books costs time and money too.
IMHO, after all is said and done, the cost is the same, but you will profit more if you take a class.

Good luck with your efforts!
