5.0 out of 5 stars Very clearly written tutorial on C++ 19 Sep 2011
By T. Hill
This is a great book, it is very clearly written and presented at a very comfortable pace.

One thing to mention is that you need a professional version of MS Visual Studio to really appreciate this book fully. I am using the free version of Visual Studio, which does not include the Microsoft Foundation Classes, so am unable to complete some of the Windows based examples.

This did not bother me, as I mainly bought this to learn C++, so am happy to stick mainly to console programs.

I am very happy with my progress since obtaining this book. In fact it has been one of the best things I have bought recently, as it has boosted my confidence and opened up other employment opportunities for me.

For anyone curious about programming in C++, or wanting a refresher course, this is indispensable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great all rounder 15 Nov 2011
By Nam
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Like to say, this is a clear and well structured book. Covers all (well maybe not all) you need to know about C++ winapi as well as Visual C++. Coming from a background I picked this up within a week. For beginners I would recommend this book, invest in yourself!

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version VERY DISAPPOINTING! 2 Mar 2012
By Loz
Format:Kindle Edition
The index in the Kindle version of this book is completely inert! i.e It is purely a long list of words with no page numbers and no links to anything in the content. This makes searching for content almost impossible. Using the electronic search routine retrieves hundreds of hits that make it almost impossible to find what you're looking for!

This has seriously dented my enthusiasm for Kindle technical books and certainly Kindle books from this publisher (if it's their fault and not Amazon's)!

DO NOT pay good money for the Kindle version; it's not fit for purpose!
