Then, usually around chapter 3 or 4, you suddenly find that what you thought was a gentle learning curve has suddenly turned into an impassible vertical cliff-face with its top lost in the clouds. You look at the text and examples, and unless you're NOT a beginner at programming, everything may as well be written in Martian.
Even the much-praised C++: A Beginner's Guide, Second Edition ALMOST falls into this trap, because right from the start it uses jargon and mathematical terms that won't be clear to the non-mathematical beginner.
By now, I must have looked at just about every single C++ book that's aimed at beginners, and in my opinion, this is the only one I've seen that really IS for absolute beginners.
If you're taking your first steps, begin here. This one WON'T have you tearing your hair out in frustration!
I would say there are a few requirements of pc knowledge just for the set up, but this book explains everything in exquisite detail :)
Contains just the necessary information so you can learn without getting sinfully bored with programming jibber jabber.
examples in the book come with syntax highlighting
very good for referring to for just a quick reference
Cons:- it is slightly short... there is a whole world to be explored through programming and this book just skims the basics..
I would definitely recommend this book!
The book is vibrant and full of examples and pictures, which guides you through step-by-step. However I would prefer if there was less "spoon-feeding", however, I appreciate this book is for absolute beginners.
Some sections could have been explained better or in a more concise manner, though, especially Object Oriented Programming. Then again, this is a tricky concept to distill down into a couple of pages.
And to test the "easy-to-follow style" part i gave it to my brother who have absolutely not seen any code in his life and after a few chapters he was interested in c++.
For that i can clearly recommend this to anyone who is interested in the language.
A more personal view point is that i really love how you are not lost in the second or third chapter after the brief introduction and have to get the information from here and there.
