I've seen that after 40 points in a stat is just a waste, is that true? I want to make a strength character but if this is true should I invest in DEX after hitting 40 STR?

You get diminishing returns for all your stats (weapon scaling, for one),but it's doubly important for Endurance, because you don't gain additional stamina past the 40th point.

yeah, you start getting pretty terrible returns after 40. the stats you invest in depend on what weapons you want to use; if some of the weapons you like scale with dex as well as str, then investing in dex could be worthwhile. many str builds like to invest in faith for miracle use, others may pour points into vitality to soak up more damage. it all depends on what you want out of the game.
