Late Objects Version: C++ How to Program, 7/e is ideal for Introduction to Programming (CS1) and other more intermediate courses covering programming in C++. Also appropriate as a supplement for upper-level courses where the instructor uses a book as a reference for the C++ language.
This best-selling comprehensive text is aimed at readers with little or no programming experience. It teaches programming by presenting the concepts in the context of full working programs and takes a late objects approach. The authors emphasize achieving program clarity through structured and object-oriented programming, software reuse and component-oriented software construction. The Seventh Edition encourages students to connect computers to the community, using the Internet to solve problems and make a difference in our world. All content has been carefully fine-tuned in response to a team of distinguished academic and industry reviewers.
The Late Objects Version delays coverage of class development until Chapter 9, presenting control statements, functions, arrays and pointers in a non-object-oriented, procedural programming context.

Comments from the C++ How to Program, 6/e and 7/e Reviewers
"Finally, an accurate and complete C++ book that everybody can understand. It will help you achieve a solid knowledge of C++ and of software engineering in general. A ‘must-have.’ ― José Antonio González Seco, Parliament of Andalusia, Spain
"As an instructor, I appreciate the thorough discussion of the C++ language, especially the comprehensive use of code examples and demonstrations of best coding practices. For my consulting work I use the Deitel books as my primary reference." ― Dean Mathias, Utah State University
"Chapter 12, Object-Oriented Programming: Inheritance, is so well done. It’s evident that the authors are diligent and focused on quality!" ― David Topham, Ohlone College
"Just when you think you are focused on learning one topic, suddenly you discover you’ve learned more than you expected." ― Chad Willwerth, University of Washington, Tacoma
"Accessible to beginners. The example-driven presentation is enriched by the optional UML case study that contextualizes the material in a software engineering project." ― Gavin Osborne, Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology
"The Deitel & Deitel How to Program Series provides a complete basis of fundamental instruction in all core aspects of C++. Comprehensive discussion and examples provide a solid grounding in the construction of C++ programs." ― Peter DePasquale, The College of New Jersey
"Code examples are well presented and easy to read. . . Very impressive that so many resources are identified. . . and mostly free, too!" ― David Topham, Ohlone College
"The Pointers chapter clearly explains a complex subject. The Simpletron exercises are simply brilliant. The Polymorphism chapter explains one of the hardest topics to understand in OOP in a clear manner. Great job! The writing is excellent, the examples are well developed and the exercises are interesting." ― José Antonio González Seco, Parliament of Andalusia, Spain
"Introducing the UML early on is a great idea." ― Raymond Stephenson, Microsoft
"Good use of diagrams, especially of the activation call stack and recursive functions." ― Amar Raheja, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona
"Terrific discussion of pointers–the best I have seen." ― Anne B. Horton, Lockheed Martin
"Very good, thorough and detailed coverage of exceptions from an object-oriented point of view." ― Dean Mathias, Utah State University
"I wish I'd had such a clear presentation of data structures when I was a student. Great coverage of polymorphism and how the compiler implements polymorphism ‘under the hood.’" ― Ed James-Beckham, Borland
"Replete with real-world case studies covering the full software development lifecycle. Code examples are extraordinary!" ― Terrell Hull, Logicalis Integration Solutions
"Aimed at someone new to C++, this is a good introduction to the C++ Standard Template Library (STL) with clear descriptions, examples and plenty of useful tips. The example code is excellent: clean, well documented, with extensive descriptions of what the code is doing and why." ― Chris Cox, Adobe Systems
"A nice introduction to searching and sorting, and Big-O." ― Robert Myers, Florida State University
"Chapter 20, Data Structures, is very good. The examples are accessible to CS, IT, software engineering and business students." ― Thomas J. Borrelli, Rochester Institute of Technology
"The best book on C++ programming for the serious student! Excellent introduction to the Standard Template Library (STL)." ― Richard Albright, Goldey-Beacom College
"Ogre is a free world-class rendering engine that has been used in several commercial games. The Ogre chapter is a great introduction, providing well documented and easy to understand examples that will have you creating your own simple computer games in no time." ― Casey Borders (Creator of OgreAL), Sensis Corp.
"The Boost/C++0x chapter will get you up and running quickly with the memory management and regular expression libraries, plus whet your appetite for new C++ features being standardized." ― Ed Brey, Kohler Co.From the Back Cover:

Since the 1990s, over a million students and professionals have learned programming and software development with Deitel® textbooks, professional books and multimedia publications. This Late Objects Version of C++ How to Program, 7/e provides clear and thorough coverage of C++ programming. It’s appropriate for one-semester procedural programming courses with little or no objects coverage, one semester courses that begin with procedural programming then proceed to object-oriented programming and possibly a selection of upper-level C++ topics, and second courses in intermediate-level
C++ How to Program, Late Objects Version, 7/e includes:
· Procedural programming from the start: The first eight chapters provide rich coverage of C++ fundamentals, including two full chapters on control statements.
· Objects and classes in the middle: The next chapters present object technology concepts, including classes, inheritance, polymorphism, operator overloading, templates and exception handling.
· Intermediate-level topics: The book includes substantial coverage of strings, files, streams, searching and sorting, data structures and the Standard Template Library. Additional chapters on game programming, an optional OOD ATM case study, the Boost C++ Libraries, the future of C++ and more, are available online.

C++ How to Program, 7/e
Introduces classes and objects in Chapter 3, before control statements, functions and arrays. It’s suitable for those who prefer an early objects approach to C++ programming.
