Quite good, but missing some important things,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beginning C++ Through Game Programming (Paperback)
The book itself is well written and suitable for someone who doesn't have any experience in programming. Granted that it may be challenging, but that is the nature of software programming in low-level languages that you have to learn a lot and quickly.
Examples in the book are solid and based on real-life examples, you won't be writing FooBar code, instead you will be writing inventory system for your hero, program alien spaceships and even write a game of blackjack. With that approach learning the fundamentals is easier as you learn what to do with them in practice instead of some abstract example.
The biggest problem of this book is that it's too short and doesn't cover some later-important topics like templates or header files, so don't expect to know everything after going through it, but it will give you good fundamentals.
