Format: Paperback
I Have been using Matlab for a while, but I recently had some hardware for my experimental setup, that needs c++ in programming. I was trying to figure out how to do that, when I found this book, and what a book. Everything turns out perfect, a simple language and step by step examples, that takes you from the beginning until you write your first code. I would highly recommend that book for anybody wants to learn visual c++ 2005, in no time at all

Great intro to programming......A two for one book. March 17 2006
By Brad Perrault - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a great introduction for an aspiring programmer. I have considered the idea of programming and recently decided to get serious about it. I spent 3 hours at the local bookstore examining this book before deciding to purchase it. The book is 1182 pages and I think you actually get two books in one. In the first chapter the author lays out his approach with this book. Before attempting Windows programming he teaches you how to program in the native ISO/ANSI C++ and the C++/CLI versions of the language. The author spends the first 10 chapters some 611 pages on the basics of programming before starting Windows programming using .NET. He uses console applications to teach you the basics in the first 10 chapters. This to me is the first book. The second book is his use of the remaining 12 chapters another 571 pages on the fundamentals of Windows programming using Visual C++ 2005. The author is incredibly methodical in teaching the fundamentals in a relaxed style making it easy to absorb and learn. I am certain there are other equally compelling beginning books on programming however I really do like this book.

Writted Specifically for the Microsoft Environment March 23 2006
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is oriented to teaching you how to program in C++ in Microsoft environments. Specifically it teaches two distinct versions of C++:

First is standard ISO/ANSI standard C++ that will run on anything and is specifically for the development of high performance applications that run in native mode on the computer.

Second is C++/CLI which is part of Microsoft's .NET framework. .NET is a library of routines that accomplish many of the standard tasks that you would otherwise have to program yourself.

The book is based around the Visual Studio 2005 development environment. Visual Studio is a full fledged IDE, the tools it provides will make writing code much easier. In fact, this and the inclusion of C++/CLI are what set this book apart from others. If you are not interested in using Visual Studio, you may want to consider another of Mr. Horton's books.

This book is in reference, format. That is, it follows more of a traditional textbook format rather than the tutorial, one step at a time, approach of many others.

Mr. Horton's writing style is relaxed and easy, it appeals to many of us. By the end ot twelve hundred pages you will need something light and easy.

The best C++ 2005 book in the market Sept. 5 2006
By D. Gorbachev - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I needed to switch from C# 2003 to C++ 2005.

It looks great at a glance... In fact, it IS great!

From my point of view, it has at least 2 serious advantages over any other C++ 2005 book that I've seen so far:

1. While most other books focus on Windows Forms, this one has several chapters on MFC (which is exactly what I needed). With experience in C# (.NET 1.1), I am not interested in WinForms (there are no major differences in developing WinForms in C# and C++), but many legacy apps were written using MFC.

2. Unlike many other C++ books, this one has several exercises at the end of each chapter. If in doubt, sample answers (solutions) are available for download from the publisher's website.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs to get up to speed with C++ 2005.

Good even for experienced VC++ programmers March 11 2007
By David Ching - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have 12 years of C++/MFC experience and I still found this book to be THE one that would ultimately propel me to learn C++/CLI and be on my way to becoming as proficient in .NET as I am in MFC. I still have a long ways to go, but this book is the one to start with.

Good but could use a reprint Jan. 9 2007
By Michael E. Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a good book to learn the C++ language from the ground up. Good coverage of ANSI and CLR C++. Also covered making GUI inside C++ using MFC and .NET.

My edition is full of typos. This book would get 5 stars if a good proofreader did their job and the book was reissued. Most of the corrections are available from the published. However, the typos are so annoying and pervasive, the book sufferes.
