Tony Gaddis’s accessible, step-by-step presentation helps beginning students understand the important details necessary to become skilled programmers at an introductory level. Gaddis motivates the study of both programming skills and the C++ programming language by presenting all the details needed to understand the “how” and the “why”–but never losing sight of the fact that most beginners struggle with this material. His approach is both gradual and highly accessible, ensuring that students understand the logic behind developing high-quality programs.
In Starting Out with C++: From Control Structures through Objects, Gaddis covers control structures, functions, arrays, and pointers before objects and classes. As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter. This text is intended for either a one-semester accelerated introductory course or a traditional two-semester sequence covering C++ programming.

"Great coverage and examples." — Ronald Conway, Bowling Green State University
"I think one of the great strengths is the inclusion of all of the source code files throughout all of the chapters. Also, the variety of supplemental resources (VideoNotes, PowerPoint presentations, Check Point and review questions, test bank questions) are very useful and provide the student with many avenues in acquiring proficiency of the course material." — Jeanette Gibbons, South Dakota State University
