4.0 out of 5 stars Really good, but lacking in some areas. Sept. 11 2011
By Paul Wiklund - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The author clearly writes this book fro the standpoint of teaching engineers C++ to help them learn programming. This makes the text great, because it is written for the non-programmer. That makes it really accessible. But the author overlooks C++ features such as the switch. He covers them, but only briefly, and without expanding on their capabilities.

As with any other programming book, avoid the digital edition. I have the paperback version and a copy in ePub. The paper copy is much preferred, as the code can sometimes stretch over pages, making it difficult on an eReader. Also, my nook is B&W, and this book has wonderful color illustrations

Should you take the college course using this book, try and get a copy of the PowerPoint slides that your instructor receives with the teacher's edition. They clarify several points, and make a wonderful companion to this book.

All in all, I highly recommend this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Handy Examples, not the Best for Newbies March 29 2013
By Shuk Cyare - Published on Amazon.com
C++ for Everyone is definitely not for everyone. While it is a handy reference for examples or variations of a keyword or function, I have consistently gone to other sources for actually learning the concepts behind programming. It is too often ambiguously worded, and leaves many things out or under-explained and under-utilized.

Newbies, just get something better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good beginning C++ guide June 8 2012
By Joshua Kirn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This C++ reference does a very adequate job explaining most C++ basics to newbies like me. The examples are very helpful as a training tool and the exercises, although there are way too many to ever actually complete them all, provide a really good avenue to understand how to use different tools. Near the end of the book, it was difficult to understand things like pointers and classes, but that was primarily due to the complexity of the concepts.
3.0 out of 5 stars Meh March 29 2013
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
I took an intro to computer programming course that used this as the textbook. Overall it's a decent book and covers the basics, but it's definitely not the most through or easy to understand book I've read on programming. It's a lot cheaper here than it was at the bookstore I bought it at. It definitely wasn't worth the $99 I paid for it, but the $50 it's going for here is a little more reasonable. Still, I would recommend reading reviews for some other books and maybe trying to find something a bit more helpful. If it wasn't for some help from our professor's teaching assistants, I wouldn't have been able to completely understand everything in the book. Overall impression - not bad, but you can do better.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! Dec 3 2012

This is by far one of the best books on C++ I have read or had to use. Highly recommend. I am keeping it for my own library even after my class was over.
