I've learned C/C++ few years ago, but I didn't used since. As my work and knowledge evolves, and with the support of C++/CLI within Windows Store and Windows Phone apps, I thought it was a good time to re-learn C++ and really get my hands on C++/CLI.If you want to learn C++ "for .net platform" for the first time, or already know either c++ or .net, this book is recommended. C++ can be a "scary" language, but well-sized chapters and clear and simple explanations of this book make the learning of this language a pleasure.If you want to learn "pure"/standard c++, this book may not be for you, as differences between standard c++ and c++/cli are not really explained/detailed/mentioned.There is mainly three parts: the first one is about learning c++ language syntax. In 8 chapters, you'll learn the bases of any programming languages (variables, functions, loops & controls statements), and controlling your program's memory (one thing really important in c++).The second part introduces you to the .net programming. As a seasoned .net developer, I've read it quite quiclky, but the content was still relevant and interesting. There are subtle differences in the way of doing the same things between c++ and C#. The third one is about common scenarios, like working with the file system, xml files and databases, creating a WCF service or making Windows Store apps. This last part is not really exhaustive. If you want to build Windows Store apps with C++, this book only will not provide you enough info (just what's needed to start developing a simple app, but nothing about integrating with the OS features, etc...).Visual C++/CLI Step by step was a great reading for start writing C++ code for the .net world. I think I'll read it again, as a reference book (through the index and/or the chapters) when I'll develop my first real-world app with C++/CLI.

Good for programming syntax, but not for creating windows application. It would be great if there are context about programming with form & controls.

I chose this book in particular because I already knew some basics of C++ but wanted to get a full understanding of the language while learning how to use it efficiently on the Windows platform specifically. I finished the first four chapters within my first hour reading this, and had no trouble with the instructions once so ever. I am using the same version of Visual Studio (2012) as used in the book which makes creating projects and following exact procedures quite easy. I recommend this book to anybody who has a thorough foundation in basic programming such as Python, as the author assumes you already know how variables, operators, and other basics work. I'm glad I bought this and look forward to learning the full .NET C++.

There is a lot of information in this book. It includes a lot of the needed items.
