The Prentice Hall Essence of Computing Series provides a concise, practicle and uniform introduction to the core components of an undergraduate computer science degree. Acknowledging the recent changes within Higher Education, this approach uses a variety of pedagogical tools-case studies, worked examples and self test questions - to underpin the student's learning. The Essence of Programming in C++ is an introduction to the concepts and techniques of programming. It assumes no prior knowledge of the subject, and enables the reader to write small and medium sized programs in the popular C ++language. This book embraces all the significant areas of programming including control structures and arrays. Functions and parameter passing are explored along with the testing and debugging of programs.
