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

Recommends it for: Computer Geeks
This is a pretty good introductory C++ book. A lot of advanced concepts are left out, though.

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.

Shelves: c, didactic
A good intro on standard C++, easy to read and learn. Has great insight on the programming practice and the examples and excercises show the true power of C++ and OOP. The only bad thing is that this is a really dated book and some chapters and standards have changed by now (2013), so interested people should buy the newest version

Very comprehensive. Will definitely get you started and on the right track as a C++ programmer.
Some complicated topics could be dealt with more fully, including use of "const", pointers and references, and friend functions and classes, but on the whole, a very thorough and well-designed course.

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.

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.

Well. This book should be read by C-Programming-Beginners. It has very high standards. Never a fan of Mr. Deitel.

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 helped me much.

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

Shelves: cpp
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.
