The only book of its kind!

This is an excellent supplement to most of the college level textbooks in C++ programming. Many authors of C++ textbooks are taken up by the apparent need to illustrate complex object oriented concepts (lest Java be seen as the alpha and omega in object oriented languages)with long winded "case studies" or "programming projects" that seem contrived (see any book by Deitel for examples of such.)Some other authors think that their exercises and examples are places to showcase their ingenuity and possession of programming tricks (see Daniel Liang's "Displaying A Pyramid Of Numbers" in Chapter 3 of Introduction to JAVA Programming, Comprehensive Version, 5th Edition, as an example of such.) But what about simple exercises to see if you've mastered the basics of arrays, loops, and simple functions? Let's face it, it will be a couple of years before you'll be asked to work on the code for an ATM machine (Deitel), in the meantime buy this book and focus on the basics.

Schaum's Outline of Programming with C++

Very informative introduction to C++. I was new to C++ and most textbooks are hard to understand and hence requires a teacher to explain everything. I started reading it halfway through the course and got a C+ when I was expecting an F.

For the person that is stuck in C programming

Who referred to this book having mistakes: They seem to be stuck in the stone ages of C programming. Since the new ANSI standard came out, (which compilers are still attempting to catch up to), header files have not used a .h extension, C Standard library headers have been renamed and so on. Every negative point the person makes indicates a complete lack of knowledge, especially accurate knowledge of the C++ standard. As such that review should be completely and utterly disregarded. This book is definitely head and shoulders above the crap that people like Herb Schildt have been putting out. Thanks.

This is an EXCELLENT book

I have purchased several C++ books, and this one is by far, the best...This book makes a great subway companion, and it's not a 1,000 page monster. I love the way the author explained pointers. He uses simple graphics to visualize memory...but they are very effective...

great handy but useful book

I bought this book after I took one semester of programing class with C++, just to freshen my memory by solving many problems. it was very useful, after all, then when I started to take the next programing course, I felt very comfortable. if you think about this price and the ingredients, it is a great buy. i have other C++ books for more detail references. the best part of this book is that you can try all the problems if you want since all the problems have solutions, so you can check right after you solve the problems. (please check for some mistakes in the programs -- you will find out if you write your own programs and run them) I highly recommend this book.
