If you are starting learning c++ then this is the book for you.
The book covers a lot. In chapter after every topic you get to do small exercises. At the end of every chapter there are answers for the small exercises. Also at the end of every chapter you get big questions which are good because they cover everything Ive learned up to that point.
The book covers pit falls, things that you should never do and why they are bad.
Great book for beginners!

Wonderful, Thorough Textbook Dec 24 2012
By Programmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a college student with thorough background in Java and C++. This book is excellent. The other reviewer described it as "too complicated" for the average student. It says in the preface of the book that they strongly recommend that the reader has some background in programming before reading, or to purchase a more elementary level book. This is the reason it was described as "too complicated". This book is NOT for beginners, it is for intermediate C++ students or students who are familiar with other programming languages. If you already have some programming under your belt, then this book is PERFECT for you. It has great practice programs and explanations of all necessary concepts in the C++ language. If you are beginning C++, I recommend a more beginner's book by the same author which was WONDERFUL as I was just learning C++ (I had a very dry teacher and this book saved my life). It is the eight edition of Problem Solving with C++. Here is the link [...] Good luck coding!

Ok book. Nov. 2 2012
By A. Dumont-Surprenant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
We have this book for our introduction to C++ programming first year of electrical engineering. It is very complete, but too complicated for beginners. Experienced programmers in my classes liked the book, but for me I preffered using online tutorials rather then use the book. If you are starting in prog, take another book or do onlines tutorials instead, but if you already have experience in prog, then this book migth be good for you.

Great book for beginners Oct. 27 2013
By Elise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've never enjoyed reading a programming book as much as I've enjoyed this one. The examples are clear, concise and relevant. He leaves nothing unclear nor unanswered and I appreciate the various blue boxes scattered throughout the chapters that highlight main points and tips. I am taking an intermediate C++ class right now, and the professor does not have any lectures to follow or notes; she merely has us read this book in order to complete assignments. I haven't felt lost or confused yet, and that is a lot to say about a C++ class for me. If anyone is able to take a class with Savitch, count your lucky stars! The rest of us will just have to settle on embracing his clarity and knowledge through a print medium.

Plus, his cover artwork is superb. Could he possibly know his audience more?!

Mr. Savitch, if you are reading this, please write a book for Python!!!!!!!
