Got here nearly a week early, seems easy to use and can literally fit in your pocket... what more to say?

Great little book to keep next to you when coding, its not particularly extensive but as a reference to the languages core features its invaluable. Its also not too technical so its great for beginners or if you want an answer without getting bogged down in technical information.

Being a programmer working on many different platforms and languages, its quite common to confuse one's syntax and concepts with others. Its here where this quick reference comes in handy. I own the same publisher's pocket guide for JAVA, JavaScript, SQL, Perl, PHP, C, C#, HTML, Haskell, Python, XML, ShellScripting, etc.

A neat pocket reference. An easy and quick way to check both syntax and what it does.
Easy too use and informative.
In my opinion, a good book for beginners and such.

Don't expect to learn C++ from this guide. It really is a pocket guide, and while it has some limited examples of how to use aspects of the language, they are brief. I was a little disappointed when I first received it, but found myself going back to it again and again. It's perfect for it's intended application, namely checking syntax and language rules. Definitely worth having on your bookshelf.

As introduction and general backup guide to C++ it is excellent, the only problem is it needs to be updated especially with the new C++11 standard.

For its age it does include the majority of features C++ provides (from C++98). I'd say its superb for a quick reference on the C++ fundamentals.

Reads very easily with nice quick explanations of what a feature or function/method does without being verbose like some books are.

Recommended to anyone with immediate programming skills who are moving over from another language and just wants to dive straight in.

Whilst by no means useful to people wanting to learn C++ from stratch, as a uni student moving sideways with experience from other programming languages into C++ this is perfect. Its succinct expination of the language fundamentals and examples of sytax made getting familiar with this specifics of C++ very easy indeed.

This is a great little concise C++ reference book but it would've been nice if it included at least some information on the
standard C++ libraries. Perhaps, this is not the purpose of this book, but it still would've been a great bonus.
