Introductory Programming / C++
Problem Solving with C++, Sixth Edition
Walter Savitch’s Problem Solving with C++ is the most widely used textbook for the introduction to programming in C++ course.
These are just a few of the reasons why:
“My students and I love this textbook. Savitch makes the material so accessible, and he does it with a great sense of humor that we all enjoy. My students tell me that they finally have purchased a college textbook where they’ve gotten their full money’s worth.”
–Jennifer Perkins, University of Arkansas at Little Rock
“Our school has used the Savitch text for many years, and it has been well received by both faculty and students. Walter Savitch explains difficult programming concepts in a clear and concise manner and discusses all the important features of the C++ language.”
–Carol Roberts, University of Maine
“Writing a book is an art if, and only if, it can create an artist. Savitch’s book does just this. It contains fundamental materials presented in a pleasant way in which not only the flow consistency, but also the example consistency, is preserved.”
–Coskun Bayrak, University of Arkansas at Little Rock
“The progression from programming basics to object-oriented concepts is logical and effectively leads beginning C++ students to an understanding of classes and more advanced topics.”
–Stephen Weissman, Burlington County College
This Sixth Edition features:
• Savitch’s unparalleled clear and concise writing style
• Extensive use of examples, exercises, and projects to promote good programming practice
• Earlier coverage of loops and arrays
• Enhanced discussion of debugging
• All code updated to be ANSI/ISO compliant
• Two new programming projects per chapter
