    learn Visual C++.NET ?

    This is an interesting offering from Savitch and his publisher, Addison-Wesley. They have bundled Savitch's 5th edition of 'Problem Solving with C++' with several CDs that let you learn C++ within Microsoft's .NET environment. The bulk of this package is still Savitch's book. The CDs are certainly an attractive convenience for learning. But keep your priorities straight. If you do not know C++, then it is the book that should be focused on. The book does start from scratch in C++. But the elementary material is dealt with thoroughly and quickly in the early chapters. A considerable portion of the book explains pointers and all the travails they can cause. In C, often the hardest problems come in inaccurate pointer manipulation. As a superset of C, C++ faces all these issues. So Savitch's chapters on pointers are perhaps the ones you might study most carefully and slowly. For the diligent student, the extensive sets of problems are a clear beacon. So too might be the dependency chart. It appears early in the book, and graphically shows, for each chapter, what previous chapters you need to know first. Very practical aid. As for the CDs that come with the book: Learning Microsoft's Visual C++.NET may be attractive to you. The development environment makes coding easy, with many graphical conveniences to find classes and methods of a class. Plus, this particular version of C++ has a significant presence in the marketplace. So careerwise, knowing it can help burnish your professional qualifications.

    a very good book if you have patience

    a very good book that takes you step by step in learning C++.However it can become tough as you progress,due to the complexity of the material at chapter 6 and above.I would also like to tell the people that when i started reading this book i had no knowledge of C++.

    NOT ANSI/ISO Compliant

    I think the title says all. If you want a supplementary book, this one is good. However, we all know that the ANSI/ISO C++ has been finalized and people wishing to learn the Standard C++ should get a book teaching you the ANSI/ISO C++.
