Mos text books, I tune out part way through each chapter. This one is not as dry and explains coding structure very clearly. Granted, I took several programming languages when I first started school several years ago (going back to finish my degree after a 10 year hiatus), so it's not a brand new subject for me.However, I've also had to dredge through several other programming texts and can say this is one of the best ones yet. Some of the things that didn't really click the first time around are finally falling into place due to this text.
This book gives any programming newcomer a super-solid introduction into the world of C++. More importantly, the author presents it very well, which definitely helps the learning process when trying to tackle the more difficult subjects. I had this book for a class, and I was able to easily pick up C++ beginner/intermediate coding thanks to the solid foundation this book gave me. I even decided to keep it around for reference because the author is very clear and precise when explaining topics, both of which a programmer will appreciate.
this book is very well written, its great for beginners or as a refresher. the chapters take you step by step ,with instructions and explanations along the way. if you posses strong math skills, along with downloading a good compiler (c++ interpreter,, app + like BloodShed) and this book, you can teach "Your Self" how to code in c++. roni ruelas, computer sciences major
Love this book. Great for anyone new to programming. Every area is broken down to pieces, and each piece is broken down into steps to understand the whole. Has plenty of complete! code examples to help understand full programs. Plenty of problems at the end of sections to challenge and help understand concepts.Worth the price? Rent it first and see how much it helps you.
Again a required textbook for a college class. Book is highly over priced, outrageously expensive for students on a tight budget.
The book is easy to follow with lots of quick reference charts and many programs to practice writing. An excellent start for your first steps into the world of programming.
I found many answers which I couldn't find in my teacher's ppt lectures slides.But if this book had Cd which inside of it with all codes ,that would be great .
Very good introductory book. The book binding was not good and it fell apart easily
