Gain the necessary skills to create applications in the Visual C++ environment with one comprehensive text.
At only the end of chapter two, I have found 4 major errors in code examples, questions and the answers provided. There appear to be significant differences between the student book (This one) and the Teachers edition as well. While the basics of the language are covered you'll be second guessing the text with questions such as "Is that even a valid piece of code"...
The subjects in the remaining 6 chapters seem to be logical; an intro on the Win32 API, MFC, Database connections and forth. I have found this book useful and recommend it.
