C++ Primer Plus
is a carefully crafted, complete tutorial on one of the most significant and widely used programming languages today. An accessible and easy-to-use self-study guide, this book is appropriate for both serious students of programming as well as developers already proficient in other languages.
The sixth edition of C++ Primer Plus
has been updated and expanded to cover the latest developments in C++, including a detailed look at the new C++11 standard.
Author and educator Stephen Prata has created an introduction to C++ that is instructive, clear, and insightful. Fundamental programming concepts are explained along with details of the C++ language. Many short, practical examples illustrate just one or two concepts at a time, encouraging readers to master new topics by immediately putting them to use.
Review questions and programming exercises at the end of each chapter help readers zero in on the most critical information and digest the most difficult concepts.
