I wouldn't recommend reading this book if you've never programmed before or you are searching for a primary readng book for learning C++. It's a good reference for C++ programmers but it is probably to hard for a beginner of programming to start with. Recommendeded ONLY if you need a reference. If you are new to programming, look up 'beginning programming' in the 'For dummies' series and Visual Basic 6 in the for dummies series as well, those are better starter books.Was this review helpful?

This book covers the material it claims but there are multiple errors in the programs written in the book. This lack of attention to detail is found in the often confusing and imprecisely written explanations. I would recommend this book as a casual reference or supplimentary text but not as a primary source of studying C++.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Touted as a C++ book for experienced C programmers, this book gives a good beginning on OO design and concepts. However, if you already have a general idea of what that is, save yourself the money. This is NOT a reference book. It may be good for a beginning C programmer to transition to C++ with, but intermediate or advanced programmers of any language would be better off skimming this in the store or buying another book on OO methodology, and getting a C++ reference.Was this review helpful?
