Pros : The book was an excellent resource to go to if I ever needed any help with anything over C++. I strongly suggest this book to anyone who wants to learn C++ or who is an advanced programmer that needs a reference book to look up something that they might get confused about. I was trying to learn C++ for a few months going online and reading sources off the Internet, but I could never really quite understand the language itself. Whenever I got the book it has turned into a great source for pretty much all of my C++ questions and has helped me out a lot with examples and in depth explanations over different objects in C++. I was actually trying to learn C++ on my own since it was the cheapest at the time and I had tons of spare time to read the book and go in depth in the language. A few other things about the book are * Figuring out the differences between C and C++ * Excellent examples over the information Schildt (the author) was teaching about * Great resource for the advanced programmers and a great guide to start off beginner programs in C/C++ Must I say anymore about this excellent book!?!??!?! If you are interested in programming with C++, this is a must have book! Cons : The only thing I disliked about the book was that I didn't quite understand the examples in the book when I was first starting. I of course didn't know a whole lot about C++, let alone C when I first got this book. AaronWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I had learned the basics of the c++ language, classes, functions, variables, pointers, but I hadn't had anything to reinforce my knowledge. I also didn't have a knowledgable understanding of the difference between C++ and C. Where was the line? I read C++: The Complete Reference Straight Through and my questions were answered. It doesn't cover windows programming, but it covers every aspect of the C++ language. It also gave me a wonderful understanding of using the Standard Template Library and especially the string class. After reading this, I've found that I'm ready to begin in any C++ subject from windows programming to CGI scripting.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
