I learned the basic concepts of C++ from this book. It is well written in a coherent way.

This is the best C++ book I have seen for beginners. It isn't quite as good as a general reference for the experienced programmer, and for that I would recommend something like 'C++: How to Program'.

But this book is excellent if you're just learning C++. I recommend it highly to teachers to use in C++ courses. I wish I had used it when I was teaching -- no one read the textbook I was given to teach from because it was too esoteric. I then told my students about this book, and the ones that read it liked it very much.

Read this book 4 years back and loved the way the book contents are written and enhanced my interest in C++. I read this book again after 4 years and I felt it very easy to recollect the C++ concepts. Thanks to Herbert Schildt.
