    For Beginners - Few Coding Samples..

    I have been programming professionally for 4-years and I purchased this book for an on-line C++ course as a refresher. I enjoyed reading this book, it is defiantly for beginners.

    What I enjoyed most:

    I enjoyed the "under the hood" topics. I enjoyed reading about how the C++ compiler functions and how data is stored and transferred from the computer keyboard.

    I also enjoyed the .Net examples at the end of each chapter.

    What this book was missing:

    This book is nearly 1,000 pages but barely 20 pages are dedicated to coding examples. I wish the author had bothered to include more coding examples.
