Used for a software engineering courseReviewed in the United States on 12 January 2013
This guy got me through my software engineering course without too much trouble. Although not exactly a classic book on C++, all the bases are covered and it's decent reading.
Great BookReviewed in the United States on 12 February 2010
I bought this book for a class I am taking. I think it is a good textbook to learn to program in C++. I think it explains things a lot better than a book I had last year that taught Python.
So clear and helpfulReviewed in the United States on 9 July 2013
This book is a lifesaver. Sometimes class lectures were hard to follow, so I'd read from Absolute C++ and all became clear!
Incomplete textbookReviewed in the United States on 24 September 2013
About 100 pages were ripped out of the beginning of this book. The important introductory information was not included in this textbook.
