Stephen R. Davis, C++ for Dummies (IDG, 1994)

One of the main problems (from my perspective) with the vast majority of C++ books on the market is that they're written for C programmers who want to migrate. What's a person to do who knows very little about C and wants to learn C++?

Not a bad book for beginning C++ programming. Author touches upon all the high level C++ constructs. Though I find the humour irritating at times. Overall, would recommend for somebody starting out on C++

This is an amzaing book for those who are interested in learning how to create computer programs and softwares using C++. The -for Dummies series of books are great in teaching the basics of a programming. The author however, could be alitte more specific on the more advance things and be more details. Some of the things written in here can seem misleading, but with practice, one could learn really smooth and quickly.

I read an older version of thsi book. It was a good introduction. It covered Object Orientented programming. I got this from a used books store. If I was to get into this programming, I would need to get a more up to date book.
