You get 2 books and 4 cd's. On the cd's, you get Visual C++ Standard Edition (without distribution license), a multimedia guide (with video!) and 1.1Gig of Visual Studio reference. One of the books is from the 'Learn Now' series so you'll spend some time on this one, learning all the kool things you can make windows do. The other book is less useful as it is a guide to using the Visual C++ environment - the wizards etc.If you are at school/college/uni and want to grow some grey matter then this is the thing to buy - and learn the most powerful language on Earth !
Want to learn Visual C++ but thought the cost of classes was to expensive? Hoping to find a cheaper way that will make a Visual C++ expert out of you without forking over thousands of dollars in the process? Well now you can have you cake and eat it to with the Deluxe Learning Edition from Microsoft Press.Coming from a non-programming background, I found this multi-volume set to both informative and detailed. Although I will admit most of the concepts were over my head, I had several friends walk me through things and the books are give you every thing you need.The first book is a 650 page Learning C++ 6.0 Now, which will enable you to start at the beginning and to move to the more advanced topics are you own pace. The book includes notes, tips and most importantly examples to follow. The book is almost entirely hands-on and for the novice this will be a great help.The second book is the Programming Guide. This 725 plus page reference takes on topics like basics of Programming, Active X, debugging and advanced programming. As with book one there is an abundance of examples and hands-on procedures to follow along with.Included is this package are 4, count them 4 cds. The first two are for the Visual C++ 6.0 Program itself, even Microsoft knows that learning with out software just doesn't work so they include it for you. The other 2 cds are the MSDN library another added value that Microsoft includes. Overall this seems to be a value that may be hard to pass up.Microsoft is working to make is easy for everyone to excel at the programming side of the computer industry. The Deluxe Learning Edition is an excellent example of why Microsoft is leading the way right into the next millennium.
As already specified before, this is an excellent kit. Just for you to know though, I want to add a few more things:First, when they say it is the un-registered version of VC++, they mean it. Every time you run or execute a prog or an application builded and compiled with this un-registered version, you get an ugly message before your prog runs that says it can't be distributed, etc, etc. It's quite annoying, but you can live with it.Second, there are a couple of important topics not covered at all, as templates, multiple class derived and inheritance, and other advanced topics, but the author proclaims himself that this is an introductory book and not an advanced one.Besides that, the books are excellent.
The multimedia is inconsistant, barely there, and not much help The INTRODUCTORY VERSION of VC++ is useless...If you really want to learn this language, buy microsoft's other versions of the manuals.... Then buy a full version of VC++ software separately. I returned my kit like this and did just that!!! MS makes a realy cool visual combo book pack with all the diff languages for Visual ... they sell it here on ....
I think this book this great for C++ beginners or VC++ beginners. It guide you step by step to grasp the basic idea of VC++. You can be a good programmer after finish this set of book. It's not as simple as learning VB, but it very powerful. But this book does not include some advanced concept of C++ and VC++. To learn more about dynamic binding, exception handling, STL or how to generate DLL, how to use ODBC, you need another book.
