Highly recommended if you are serious about becoming a programmer.
I will just say that this is the best book you will ever find on C++.
I tried few books on C++ before and I find this book well written, great (and working) examples, great flow charts
and the best approach for explaining the materials.
Tony Gaddis did it again.
keep up the good work.
apart from the excellent explanations , this book has a variety of "stuff": regular "chick point" questions every about dozen pages (or less) ,end of chapter questions (fill in the blanks ,find the coding error , programming challenges ... etc) , lab manuals ,associated videos, a [...] association (not free).
in short : if you are a c++ beginner please do yourself a favor and get this book , period .
This book is different. Using an intuitive, unintimidating style, the author guides you at a gradual pace through each concept. There are no colossal jumps in difficulty from one topic to the next, everything flows smoothly and predictably. The sample programs are also demanding but realistic, with plenty of explanations. Thanks to the author, Tony Gaddis, I just might finally get a firm grasp on the scary, esoteric world of programming! I hope all beginning programming courses use this book or something close to it.
