I think it's well written and intelligently presented. It's a good introduction not only to C++ programming, but also to computer science as a whole.- Larry Herman, UNITEC Institute of Technology
This book has a very large number of exercises, with a large variety of types. It is one the things that attracted me to the text. I am pleased with the quantity and quality of the exercises in this book.- Cary Laxer, Computer Science, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
Joel Adams and Larry Nyhoff address two key goals for first-year computing courses: to give students programming skills in a specific language, and to introduce them to the larger field of computer science. In this third edition of their best-selling book, these experienced educators offer a well-rounded approach to the methodologies and techniques of C++, while presenting students with a general overview of computing as a discipline, allowing them to put their learning into a broader context.
