4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for what it tries to be. June 11 2001
I am a student of C++ and have an entire shelf of 1100 page C++ books w/cd's. Gosselin's book is not one of them. This text book is 640 pages and does not come with CD. For a while, I had mixed thoughts on this book but now feel it has a particular focus and is quite good at that focus. C++ is a 3-dimensional morass of subjects and related subjects. Book authors can get lost trying to write a be-all, do-all book. Gosselin has picked a reasonable path through the maze and instructs on the path subjects well. I am only familiar with the material up to Chapter 6 ( 1. intro to the VC++ compiler, 2. C++ Basics, 3. Operators & Control Structures, 4. Memory Management & Classes, 5. Object Manipulation (more class work), and 6. Inheritance.) Gosellin's instruction seems to be excellent on the subjects he picked.
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.

We use the textbook as a part of a introduction to C++. I can not recommend this book to those of us trying to get over the steep and very tough learning curve of Visual C++. There seems to be mistakes and typo's in every chapter. This does not help matters when you spend hours working with the assignments that are given at the end of each chapter. For the life of me I could never figure out why authors of programming books glance over some of the most important topics? In this text, "Functions" and "Classes" are not given enough details and the examples do not do justice. For it's [cost] this book is better suited for those with some experience with C++.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, TONS of errors. Oct. 3 2001
As I progress thru this book I find myself spending more time trying to figure out if the books right or wrong. This is very harmful to the learning experience as I would expect the book to contain very few errors!
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"...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good course material to leverage your understanding of C++ Nov. 16 2004
By Qubit - Published on Amazon.com
First, I will admit as others already have, there are many typo errors in the book. However, when you spend the time reading carefully and analyzing the source code provided in the projects, there is one advantage to this -- you say to yourself, "That's not right!" Yet, as you progress through the chapters, with the latter in mind, ironically it may help you learn better. Call it, "book debugging" if you will.

This material has provided me with a solid understanding of Visual C++, especially with the inclusion of examples at the end of each chapter. Without the examples, it is conceivable that a student would be lost with this book. By completing the examples in full, as a student you will find the knowledge will begin to pour into your mind. I have experienced this with this book.

For those who disregard the validity of this book, you have made key points. This book is not for everyone, but I have found it to be an excellent teaching source. Mind you, coupled with an Internet search engine, it makes things so much easier when learning Visual C++!
