Although the cover of the book says it's for beginning and intermediate programmers, Visual C++ 5 from the Ground Up is clearly a tutorial geared toward programmers who are at least experienced with C. This book does not present a comprehensive introduction to C++ or Visual C++. Instead, it focuses on three specific areas: database programming, Internet programming, and application packaging.
C++ programmers who are interested in the covered topics will find Visual C++ 5 from the Ground Up to be a useful reference tool. It is not, however, a good place to start if you're just getting into Visual C++.From the Back Cover:
