عموما هو كتاب حلو للي عارف سي ++ بالفعل وعايز يتمزج ويتدلع.

فيه مشروع عملي كامل عبارة عن برنامج بيعمل وظائف ماكينة الصراف الآلي، المشروع مكتوب من الألف إلى الياء ومفيد جدا.

عيب الكتاب إنه فيه رغي وكلام إنشا كتير، بس على الجانب الآخر، دي تعتبر ميزة للي عاوز... يتمزج ويتدلع.

- lots of examples and practices.
- a complete project "ATM Case Study" is included with a very satisfying explanation.

- some topics could have been demonstrated in a more short and simple way, the guys were boring at so

This book is really good. There are lots of examples with well explained code. Too bad there is no e-book to facilitate searching within the book (the book is over a thousand pages), although I don't blame them that much due to the facility in finding copyrighted ebooks that give nothing back to the author.
The CD could have had the binary code instead of having to go to site for that purpose.

Anyways the book takes you from beginner to intermediate in C language programming and gives you an intr
My book in C++ class ^^
Simple, clear, worth in examples.
It contains smart tips and hints.
Good as a reference.

This was my first book on C++ programming and this is the book I would recommend to anyone who want to start programming in C++. Although, I must admit that I would not recommend C++ and consequently this book to anyone who just want to start programming: C++ is not the best language to start a journey in the world of programming.

first programming book ever read. really good would recommend people to go and read it and do the exercise.
I used this book to understand programming paradigm in the first year of my computer science education. It is really helpful for the beginner. It is not only helpful for beginner but also advanced programmer. This book published in my country "C/C++ How to program". It includes both programming language. It teachs you both of them. Especially if you struggle questions end of chapters, you will have a point of view for evolution from structural programming to object oriented programming.

I've been with this book for a year
This is an awful book for beginning C++ programming. It starts off well enough, but once the student reaches chapter three, the book is worthless. The online video examples do nothing but summarize the book's text. I would not recommend this book to any serious beginning programming student.
It was the only book I read when I start learning C++ programming, I can't tell if there is better books out there.
But I loved it, it is written in a very easy language that takes you step-by-step through every aspect of C programming.

it's easy to read and have very good exercises, although exercises are lengthy. It has classes before functions which was weird
the chapter I like most is sorting, STL and Template.
it is really good book for begginers. it explains everything really well. you understend everything 100%, and also it gives some basic XHTML lessons too.
I really enjoyed working with C++. The book's well put together and covers all the basic to intermediate topics for getting started.

Hahahaa..this book was my first programming book that I red. It was in my first grade of computer science in IPB.
It helped me much.
Great for beginners looking for detailed and explained OO skills in C++. I studied it for Semester 1, 2 and 3 in baccalaureate.
This series is great. For beginners as well as a reference.
I started with the fourth edition and have kept them all.

Introductory C++ book with a lot of code examples.
Right for programming beginners and overviewers of basic C++.
