This brand new book from best-selling author Walt Savitch offers complete, absolute coverage of the C++ programming language. It provides all of the tools necessary for experienced and novice programmers alike to master C++, including: thorough coverage of the Standard Template Library; complete and fully executable code throughout; sections highlighting programming tips and common pitfalls; and a logical order of coverage of C++ topics in order for students to better understand the language, e.g. arrays before classes. As with Savitch's other book Problem Solving with C++, the hallmark feature of this new book is his truly accessible writing which students often acknowledge as the best they've ever read.

Absolute C++ is appropriate for introductory courses covering the C++ language, intermediate programming courses introducing C++ to students familiar with another language and will act as a total reference beyond their coursework.

Features :

  • Language features are presented in context of complete working C++ programs.
  • Complete (language focused) introduction to the C++ language.
  • Contains extensive coverage of the STL.
  • Pedagogical use of full-color presentation to aid in students learning of code structure.
  • Introduces modern programming topics such as UML (Unified Modeling Language) and Patterns.
  • Contains extensive pedagogy including:
  • Pitfalls
  • Programming tips
  • Self-test exercises with answers
  • Contains CD-ROM with instructor and student resources.
  • Author Walt Savitch has been widely acclaimed for his clear, concise and engaging writing style.
