What is it with this book? It's like they're using an unknown language to teach you another language. The only programming I've done was in an introductory C++ class (which I got an "A" in). This is not a good study source, especially if you're trying to understand the material on your own.
This book is really dense, and not very useful. It's definitely not cleanly laid out, concise, nor clear in explaining the concepts. You don't need this book to learn C++, just use google. I'm pretty sure my school set up some kind of deal with the publishers of this book to force us to purchase this thing. I got it much cheaper off , but it's still ridiculously overpriced.
I bought it for my college course, and this book made no sense. It is not very understandable, and the code examples are uninformative and often incomplete. I did most of my learning with free (and ironically much easier to understand) websites.Don't waste your money on this book. Even if your class requires it, arguably you can do without it.
I do not understand the numerous poor reviews of this book. This book contains a wonderful amount of detail about programming classical algorithms in C++. I do NOT think it is intended as a first book in C++. But there are plenty of those. At my university, after a year of introductory programming a student would take a course in data structures and algorithms. This book would be suitable for that level. And it does a very good job.
This is totally NOT for beginners !!!, im using this book for my programming fundamentas III class, but really, my last book that i used in my past c++ classes that i cant remember the name of that book right now, but if you are interested in it send me a message and i would look in my shelf of books for it. Any way as I was saying, my last book is much better than this one ! this book is not good at all, It kind of tries to teach what is says, data structures, but i ended up reading my past book. The second chapter tries to teach you about classes, throws you a Clock program that it doesn't compile and doesn't teach you about the construct and destuct functions before the classes.
This was a required book for a course in data structures. The explanations were clear, and I liked the illustrations. I seldom needed to look outside this book to complete my data structures homework.
This book was just okay. It wasn't very clear in its examples and it seemed like they just threw some code together and called it a book.
I don't know why, but this book doesn't really explain things clearly.You would be better off either buying something cheaper (or free), or paying for the best.
