Overview

C++ PROGRAMMING: FROM PROBLEM ANALYSIS TO PROGRAM DESIGN, Sixth Edition remains the definitive text for a first programming language course. D.S. Malik's time-tested, student-centered methodology uses a strong focus on problem-solving and full-code examples to vividly demonstrate the how and why of applying programming concepts and utilizing C++ to work through a problem. This new edition includes updated end-of-chapter exercises, new debugging exercises, an earlier introduction to variables and a streamlined discussion of user-discussion of user-defined functions to best meet the needs of the modern CS1 course. An optional CourseMate brings C++ PROGRAMMING: FROM PROBLEM ANALYSIS TO PROGRAM DESIGN to life with interactive study tools including videos, quizzing, flashcards, and games. The CourseMate's digital Lab Manual offers additional hands-on exercises, allowing students to reinforce critical thinking through practice.

    Required text for me

    This book is the required text for a beginning C++ Programming class. I am much older than my classmates and brand new to programming - read, I was worried I wasn't going to understand the material. I am only up to Chapter 4, and so far I'm doing very well in class. The book is clear, the examples are very helpful, and I am happy with the purchase. The only thing I wish it had was a glossary, or specific definitions for boldface type words.
    If you do not need the sixth edition, the fifth can be legally found in pdf form for free on the Internet. The sixth edition has more examples/program samples which I'm finding very helpful.
