A first course C++ programming text emphasizing object-oriented programming, problem solving skills, and program engineering and design. Discusses top-down design, functions, procedural decomposition, selection structures, repetition, simple data types, files, arrays, and structures. Introduces software engineering, user-defined classes, modeling concepts, recursion, pointers, and dynamic structures. Uses a problem solving approach to guide the student through relevant case studies geared to specific topics. Pointers have been de-emphasized and are included with dynamic data structures only. Supplementary materials are available on the Web.

This book was a requirement for my Introduction To Programming class. We went through most of it in class, but not page by page, I did that at home. I found that although this book has an online err list, it still had MANY undocumented errors throughout. I also found that the projects were hard to figure out by the examples given in the book. Come on guys, this IS a book for beginners! How are we supposed to come up with the solutions if they are not covered in the book? Needless to say- I passed the class with a lot of help (there were 5 of us left at the end of the semester of 25- maybe the book had something to do with it?)I am not keeping this book- I already sold it to another poor student that has to have it for their class.Was this review helpful?
