Completely revised and updated with the latest version of C++, the new Fifth Edition of Programming and Problem Solving with C++ provides the clearest introduction to C++, object-oriented programming, and software development available. Renowned author team Nell Dale and Chip Weems are careful to include all topics and guidelines put forth by the ACM/IEEE. A new chapter on Data Structures makes this text ideal for the one- or two-term course. New Software Maintenance Case Studies teach students how to read code in order to debug, alter, or enhance existing class or code segments.
