PS I am updating my score from one to four (!!!) as later chapters of the book are really well written compared to any other book on the market and I have seen almost all of them. Still too sad that Pearson does NOT provide with a Student Manual.
I bought this book recently & book itself is good enough for a good understanding of several aspects of OOP/C++ and procedural programing.
However, for studying any computer language exercises and solutions to these exercises are needed. Unfortunately Publisher of the book did NOT provide me with any of the promised products in this book (I bought International edition as at present I am based outside of the US).
a) If buying US edition of the book please be aware that you will NOT be provided with any promised Students Solutions Manual.
b) If buying International Edition of the book please be aware that you will NOT be provided with any promised additional chapters to the book, solutions manual, and "online notes" (in which you mainly will listen what is already written in the book).
Hence, I strongly advise you to check all of these with Publisher before buying the book.
For more information please visit Publisher's website, under resources click Students Resources, then Online Companion, & Students Solutions manual and you will see that Students Solutions Manual is NOT available for US edition. For International you can see that no Online companion is available at all.
These remarks are for 8th US and International editions of the book.

Learning c++ in uni for a year for 3d animation, but this book has taught me so much more and made everything so much clearer, I learnt what classes were and how to use them in the first few chapters of this book in about a week, when I didn't have a lecture in how to use classes in a year. Says something eh.

El libro es muy bueno. Explica de forma clara y concisa todo lo que hay que saber de C++. Además, da consejos en todo momento, tiene información de las librerías y del nuevo estándar. Lo recomiendo como libro de iniciación y consulta.
