The Ultimate Beginners C++ Guide,
This review is from: Learn to Program with C++ (Paperback)
I am a 15 year old sophomore in high school. Lately I have become interested in computer programming, and I studied the BASIC language. For Christmas I recieved a C++ program, but I had no idea how to program in C++. I tried reading the manual, but it was not help, so I bought this book. Now, within 4 days of purchasing the book, I wrote my own program to figure how well I need to do on my final exams to get a certain grade.
I contribute this to the way the book is layed out. John Smiley brings you into one of his C++ classrooms and lets you "take the classes". This book is very simple and easy to read, and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the C++ language, but doesn't really know where to start.
