The author clearly writes this book fro the standpoint of teaching engineers C++ to help them learn programming. This makes the text great, because it is written for the non-programmer. That makes it really accessible. But the author overlooks C++ features such as the switch. He covers them, but only briefly, and without expanding on their capabilities.As with any other programming book, avoid the digital edition. I have the paperback version and a copy in ePub. The paper copy is much preferred, as the code can sometimes stretch over pages, making it difficult on an eReader. Also, my nook is B&W, and this book has wonderful color illustrationsShould you take the college course using this book, try and get a copy of the PowerPoint slides that your instructor receives with the teacher's edition. They clarify several points, and make a wonderful companion to this book.All in all, I highly recommend this book.
This is a great book for someone with no programming experience. Developers who have been through any class beyond OOP I/II should look for something a bit more technical than this textbook.If you've been in the dev world for a while I'd recommend picking up a reference guide in lieu of this entry level programming manual. The book starts with functions and works its way up to classes, which will seem a bit slow paced to anyone who has utilized a high level language before.If you are the type of person who uses Google to copy and paste code in order to get by, you owe it to yourself to spend some time studying a text such as this so that you can understand what is going on behind the scenes with objects and methods. This book is worth picking up today if you're still green; you'll be eased into the world of C++ at a very comfortable pace.
This book is okay. The title implies that it's written for beginners, and in a way it is. If you have programmed before and are looking to pick up C++, this book will help you, but be a little basic for you. If you've never programmed before, as was my experience when I bought this book, you will find it confusing, since it is written by a programmer and not a teacher. Some of the examples make sense, but it doesn't do a good job of helping a beginner. A better title for this book would be "C++ for Everyone Who Already Knows Another Programming Language but Not Very Well."
Love this book! I feel like it explains things very well, plus the pictures, diagrams, tables, etc. really help to picture the different programming techniques and how they all work. I think it's a great book for learning C++, I highly recommend it to anyone looking to learn this language!
Love this book! I had to take c++ as a requirement to graduate. I thought I would never be able to program as I had much trouble with matlab. But this book broke down the steps very nicely, has many pictures, self-checks to make sure you're understanding, and definition boxes. I will never sell this book!
Had to get this text for a class and found it to be helpful in some areas but not as descriptive and in depth as I would like. Good for anyone with some general experience and/or a basic understanding of programing in another language.
This book is great if you've never programmed before. It explains basic programming concepts simply and explains common terminology. This book is not for people you have programmed in other languages and want to try out C++. It is meant for people who have never looked at code before and are just starting out. It gives some simple problems to solve to help you get down some basics.
I liked how comprehensive this book is. Every book I looked at before C++ for everyone assumed that I knew how to program. This beer has helped set the foundation of programming for me so I can understand what other languages are trying to teach me. I would recommend this for anyone who is interested in learning how to program and has no idea where to begin.
