From the Publisher
Its the intuitive, step-by-step, self-paced guide to learning how to write professional software applications with Microsoft Visual C++.NET.
This title is aimed both at novice programmers who have no knowledge of modern structured programming languages and at experienced programmers who dont know Visual C++.

It does give a few important introductory points on the new managed classes, to its credit. However one-half of the way through the book the author begins to leave C++ and give "glimpses" of the .Net features of C++, which are much too vast to cover even simplistically in such a small space. The topics quickly became so far from what I wanted to learn about C++ that it was hard to believe they were covered in the same book as the simplistic syntax lessons at the beginning. I came away from this book more confused as to what I could do with C++ .Net than before I read it.
I don't know who this book is intended for, but it is definitely not for those wanting an tutorial on core .Net C++ without the excessive syntax explanations that fill the first half of so many programming books.

The first one is sure not for begineer and I was definitely misleaded by the numerous excellent reviews in amazon to buy this one. I even questioned whether developers in the IT fields will write programs in such manner. May be the second and the third one is aimed for certification, it touches everythings in Visual C++ in quite a superficial way. It is difficult to grap the complicated stuffs inside.
But for this one, I have just read the first 8 chapters, it is an excellent book for me. The tutorial format with simple but good and clear enough examples. I can really grap all the concepts easily this time. This book really meets the purpose of Step by Step Series - Learn core programming skills with these hands-on, tutorial-based guides designed to walk any developer through the fundamentals of Microsoft's programming languages in this. And I may buy the Programming series after this one for professional level.
For those who complain this books too light, I think they are wrong, please read the purpose of Step by Step series before making comment. This books really meets the purpose.
If they want the more advanced one, they should buy the Programming with Microsoft Visual C++.Net instead which is designed to be the best single-volume explorations of professional-level software tools and technologies, Programming books provide expert guidance and instruction-coupled with a full cache of reusable code and other resources on CD-ROM-to help expedite your productivity. Part of the Microsoft Programming Series. (i.e copy from MSPress)

The book wades through managed C++ code, and it is very good. However, the author doesn't do a good job of maintaining consistency and explaining the code. Read morePublished on Oct. 6 2003 by Brian Maula

C++ user manual does not come with a Visual C++ software. this book is not good, but you have to buy it as the user's manual. Now you see microsoft's monopoly.Published on Dec 19 2002
I was tempted to give this book 1 star, but it does give a small (if extremely inconsequential) introduction to Managed C++. Read morePublished on Oct. 14 2002 by Chris Gardner
If you're new to C++ and want a self paced instruction from which you plan to teach yourself the language, don't choose this book. Read morePublished on Sept. 7 2002
This is a great book for beginner even if I feel it's poor at my first glance. It covers essential materials that you should know about Managed C++ and .NET Framework. Read morePublished on Aug. 30 2002 by dribgnirps
