C++ in 8 hours is a great book for anyone looking to learn C++ from scratch. I have never used any coding language before and I am an absolute beginner meaning a lot of material I have read before this was over my head. The book is clear, well-written and teaches you in an easy to follow way. The book delivers is promises and teaches you C++ in around 8 hours. I have now moved onto some of the more advanced books I had purchased but now I can understand them and I already know the basics.Overall a great book to get you started with C++. Easy to follow even for absolute beginners and delivers exactly what it promises on the cover.
I've always been interested in programming, so I enjoy collecting books on the subject. Granted, I've learned not to expect too much when it comes to the free/low priced books, which was what made this one such a nice surprise. The structure is excellent, the exercises fully explained and easy to understand, whether you're an absolute novice or someone who's trying to brush up on prior knowledge. Learning a new programming language always seems like a daunting task, but this book stays true to what it advertises: it really does help you progress quickly, making it possible to learn C++ in a single day. Definitely one I'd recommend for any aspiring programmer, and I look forward to checking out other books by this author!
I couldn't recommend this book more. It's fantastic resource. I've studied C++ in classes and on my own with other resources, and this book is definitely one of the best, clearest resources for understanding the language.The information in the book is good, it is concise and easy to follow for beginners. Sometimes it is hard to follow some books but this one does a very good job of breaking the subjects down into chapters and building from chapter to chapter with clear explanations. I think that the author have a great deal of experience in C++ as well as making it very easy to apply. This is something just for anyone who is looking for a great step by step guide in C++ programming.
I bought this book for my husband, but I was a little skeptical about the low price. I was really wrong about that though and I’m glad. This author went above and beyond to make sure that the programming language was easy to understand and easily broken down. My husband loved how each action (such as if statements, continue statements, etc) had an entire page devoted to them and their specifics instead of cramming everything together. This book is easy to read and understand and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone trying to learn about C++ quickly
Coding used to be a legitimate foreign language to me. Upon learning that I’d need to acquire this skill for my job within a few days, I was mortified. I don’t know how the author does it, but he breaks down the terms into something a laymen like me can understand, and I didn’t even need the few extra days. It did take longer than 8 hours, but that was my own fault because I took multiple breaks. I was sooo grateful for the keyword chart as I printed it off and kept it with me at work. Definitely recommend this book
I am self taught in a few different simple programming languages and can make basic changes to my own websites. I have a client who has asked me to modify an entertainment program that is written in C++ and I knew nothing about that language - until now. I grabbed Ray Yao's "C++ in 8 Hours" and this book really did give me the knowledge that I needed in just one day of study. Yao's easy to follow guide took me through the various statements, strings, and file operations of this language and I was able to understand what I needed to in order to work with this language. I found the tests and answers included with the book to be very helpful as well. Definitely recommend.
New to programming, I found his book extremely easy to follow and helpful. It's broken down in a very easy to digest format with great explanations and examples. Perfect for someone who is just starting out and needs a quick read to determine if this is a good fit or for a programmer desiring to increase their knowledge of C++. I found this to be wonderfully put together and professional and would definitely recommend!
