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.
Decent book but by no means detail oriented June 5 2014
By Don Federico - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is apparently a half-sized version of a much larger text by the same author, Big C++, and it shows. I don't have the fuller version, but this book definitely seems to be a copy and paste job, as the coverage that is available is clear, except when it references functions or features out of the blue that are not explained previously, or much more than cursorily when used. The material is lacking as well, giving simple explanations of concepts, but never delves into subjects where concepts merge and have to be used together. Discussions of vectors is weak, heap usage is weak, and how these interact with objects, especially where all three intersect.

Much better beginner C++ books out there. This book is C++ lite for beginners.
Meh March 29 2013
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.
