Hallmark features of this title

  • A problem-driven, fundamentals-first approach focuses on problem solving rather than syntax.
  • The step-by-step presentation starts at the beginning, teaching basic concepts and techniques before writing custom classes. Topics flow from fundamentals to object-oriented programming, from simple functions to STL, and from simple data types to classic structures.
  • Programming exercises are grouped by level of difficulty to give students many opportunities to practice and apply their skills.
  • Engaging examples and problems provide interesting context for learning concepts. Examples are drawn from math, science, business, finance, gaming, animation and multimedia to make the material more relatable.
  • Flexible chapter ordering allows instructors to skip or cover graphics later.
