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.

A good primer, but a bit sparse Sept. 17 2012
By J Larsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book for someone with no programming experience. Developers who have been through any class beyond OOP I/II should look for something a bit more technical than this textbook.

If you've been in the dev world for a while I'd recommend picking up a reference guide in lieu of this entry level programming manual. The book starts with functions and works its way up to classes, which will seem a bit slow paced to anyone who has utilized a high level language before.

If you are the type of person who uses Google to copy and paste code in order to get by, you owe it to yourself to spend some time studying a text such as this so that you can understand what is going on behind the scenes with objects and methods. This book is worth picking up today if you're still green; you'll be eased into the world of C++ at a very comfortable pace.

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.

Handy Examples, not the Best for Newbies March 29 2013
By Shuk Cyare - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.
Needs more worked problems June 8 2014

Although the material is usually explained well, and the processes the author chooses to demonstrate are well done, the book would really be excellent if more examples were given.
