Overview

C++ is an object oriented programming language based on the original C. It is now the most popular 'professional' language to master and the language used to write most of the applications we all use today. ANSI ( American Standards Institute ) , or sometimes called ISO ( Int. Standards Org. ) C++ is the long awaited standard for the language itself. Over the next year, most of the companies that sell C++ compilers will have tuned their product to work, in the main, to this new standard. C++ code written before the standard will continue to work as before.The book covers all aspects of the language through to Objects and using the Standard Template Library. No knowledge of other programming languages is assumed, although exposure to some form of programming an advantage. Ivor teaches C++ as a first step to real programming, and helps a novice become a competent programmer. The explanations are thorough and leave no gray areas. This also makes the book useful for people with limited programming experience in another language who want a thorough grounding in C++. This book is not specific to any compiler or computer, making it a valuable learning tool regardless of whether you are using an old 486 with DOS, or the latest Sun SparcStation. It is an easy-going tutorial, based on a proven formula of step-by-step examples, friendly explanations and exercises.

Explains everything thoroughly, awesome execution, if you find the Bitwise operators frustating, dont worry, and search for some tutorials on converting Decimal Hex. Also the scientific windows calculator will automatically convert.

If you are lost in the world of C++, or programming in general, purchase this book! Mr. Horton's detailed analysis of the language and the nature of programming is simple and easy to understand, yet complex and all-encompassing. When I began my 500 level university Object Oriented C++ course, I had never seen the language before. The class text provided was a joke, and the only way I survived was by reading and enjoying Horton's incredible book. This is NOT jus a reference, it's a lifesaver. If you want to feel comfortable writing your own successful programs in C++, this book is most definitely for you.

Taking an introductory C++ at a local University. Found the required text to be extremely poor and hard to read. Bought Ivor's book and have been using it way more than the course text. It explains concepts by example, and very relavant examples at that. The topic of each chapter is broken down into smaller topics, each with it's own detailed explanation and most with their own example. The sample source code is plentyful too. This book is a keeper unlike the textbook for my class.

This is a great book it explains everything in plain english and makes learning C++ fun and exciting. So if your trying to decide which book you should get to learn c++ this one is it.
