4.0 out of 5 stars Close to perfect C++ learner's guide
With this book I learnt C++ from scratch. Even now when I can handle C++ quite well and used it to earn a living, I am still using the way the author presented the material in this book to think when I write OO programs. I said it's a "close to perfect" book is, in fact, to express a kinda regret that I need to find some other materials on C++ to tell me...

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but check the errata first
Like software that is rushed out the door full of bugs, this book seems to have been rushed to the printer and is REPLETE with errors. Granted, for $15 this book is still a bargain, but get the errata and go through it and correct all the errors first. In fact, it's got so many errors that I've pretty much set it aside until the second edition.
Again, too many...

With this book I learnt C++ from scratch. Even now when I can handle C++ quite well and used it to earn a living, I am still using the way the author presented the material in this book to think when I write OO programs. I said it's a "close to perfect" book is, in fact, to express a kinda regret that I need to find some other materials on C++ to tell me more about multiple inheritance. If not taking this into account, I would rate this a 5-star book. From scratch, it shows and walks with you the way from how to write procedural functions, arrays, pointers to classes, from simple private inheritance to polymorphism and from objects to containers. Simply, it's really a great book for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good text for HNC/HND students, 31 Oct 1999
By A Customer
This book deals with the practical aspects of C++ programming. The first half of the book uses a procedural style, and the second half concentrates on object-oriented topics.
I recently had to teach an object-oriented programming course to both HNC and HND students. I found that with the second half of this book I was able to devise and teach a course very quickly with very little preparation. The students liked the book as well.
The first half of the book can be used for an introduction to programming course.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant explanations - let down by numerous errors, 4 Dec 1998
By A Customer
I wanted a refresher course on C++, having been away from the language for a few years. This book has some of the best explanations of C++ topics I've ever come across, e.g. protected members and virtual functions. As it also covers the subject right from the basics it would serve well as a first text on the subject. Be warned though - there are numerous (small) mistakes littered throughout the book.

Again, too many errors for the rather complicated examples he presents. Tread carefully...

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference book, 1 Aug 1997
By A Customer
This is one of the best C++ books I've ever seen, and I've looked at quite a few. It has the only useful discussion of stream classes, including strstream, I've ever found. Reference material, such as a listing of ioflags was easy to find and well structured. And the price is much lower than other comparable books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, practical, perfect first time C++ book, 11 Jun 1998
By A Customer
Great first book for learning C++. The only deficiency is in the index. The book is very practical with examples rather than the vague, verbal, stilted prose found in other books.

By A Customer
This book is an excellent supplement to any C++ book, but it can also stand alone.
