However, the basics of producing good quality programs were covered well, but the architecture of Windows and event-driven programming were not covered in good detail. I strongly believe that understanding the code is just as important as producing a program that incorporates a good user interface and that provides rich functionality.
That brings me to my third point: the book concentrates too much on producing the program GUI and not enough on data handling and the refined Input-Output functions of the new MFC. The book does not go into enough detail about the data control in a program and object hierarchies of the MFC.
Overall, this book was a good introduction, but any expectations beyond that were not satisfied with the reading of this book
book allows you to teach yourself MS Visual C++ 4 in 21 days
without compromising depth. Everything you need to know to
start writing commercial grade software is covered in this
very easy to manage book. You start out your first day with
the basics by writing a simple Windows "Hello" program.
By the end of the 21st day, you'll be writing 3-D virtual
reality (Doom-like) programs for Windows! The best thing
about it all is the incremental lessons are so effectively
designed for the reader to easily comprehend!
out step by step. However, it doesn't explain the how or
why part very well. After reading this book, you'll know
how to do many things, but you won't really understand why.
Most of the text is just a list of step by step instructions
on how to accomplish a task. If that's all you want to do,
then that's fine, but after reading 21 chapters, my feeling
was that I didn't really learn how to apply visual c++ to
my situation, but simply learned how to use the various
Visual C++ features like Classwizards, etc.
Picked up Mastering C++ and Microsoft Press's Inside Visual C++ and actually learned why I was doing what I was being asked to type, instead of just seeing cool effects. The only thing I did learn was about the visual toolbars for creating the look of the interface.
