Book summary

Problem Solving with C++, 4e is a revision of one of the leading books for courses introducing programming in C++. The text explains C++ and basic programming techniques in a way suitable for beginning students. This book adapts to the syllabus created by the instructor rather than making you adapt to the book. The order in which the chapters and sections are covered can easily be changed without loss of continuity in reading the text. The book teaches students how to define their own classes, while ensuring a solid understanding of basic tools such as simple control structures and function definitions. A measured approach is taken toward classes, teaching students how to write simple classes at first, then constructors are added, then overloading simple operators, then overloading the I/O operators " and ", and so forth. By defining their own classes early, students are getting a hands-on experience not provided by those texts that merely teach how to use classes in the beginning. This book also comes with Addison-Wesley's CodeMate. This online program competency builder transforms a student's reading experience into a dynamic programming environment with a click of a mouse.CodeMate allows students to view, compile, run, and edit programming problems directly from the textbook without installing a compiler.
