Review:

C++ for Dummies, like all of the Dummies books, is an exercise in edutainment. The book is littered with cartoons, one-liners, cute symbols, checklists, and hints. Beneath all of the fun, author Stephen Davis provides a handy road map of C++ complete with warning signs to help beginners avoid stylistic and conceptual mistakes. The book contains useful pointers for programmers who use Microsoft and Borland C++ compilers and highlights some of the nonstandard features of these compilers. C++ for Dummies is full of apt metaphors that bring some of the more difficult-to-grasp concepts to life.

From the Back Cover:

The features of C++ programming are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Understanding how they fit together is important. C++ For Dummies, 2nd Edition, shows beginners and experts useful tips on how to get a better grasp of the C++ language. Unlike other C++ programming books, this handy reference considers the "why" just as important as the "how." This down-to-earth guide also includes a review of the C language in case your knowledge of C is rusty.

Inside, find helpful advice on how to:

  • Get your feet wet with an introduction to the non-object-oriented features of C++
  • Catch up on the object-oriented learning curve so you can write programs right away
  • Write effective, complete, industrial-strength classes
  • Streamline your programs with inheritance
  • Use the optional features of C++ to become a polished programmer
  • Test your skills and see what you've learned with Stephen's new 25-minute Workout
  • Plus, Stephen's Top Ten Lists, Including:
    • Ten ways to avoid adding bugs to your program
    • Ten most important compiler switches
