Through hands-on lab exercises, this lab manual teaches the syntax and semantics of C++ constructs in a flexible framework that is perfect for both closed lab settings and independent learning. The exercises are broken into three types of activities:

Pre-Lab: Reading review and paper-and-pencil exercises designed to ensure understanding of the material to be covered in the exercises
In-Lab: Individual lessons broken into exercises specifically mapped to the concepts covered in the chapter
Post-Lab: Programming assignments which can be done independently and cover the important topics from the chapter
Checklist cover sheets allow students and instructors to track the assignments, output, and grading for each exercise. Perforated pages aid in submission and grading of exercises and homework assignments.
