Excellent undergraduate text

I have looked over a good number of C++ books for several of the undergraduate courses I teach. The wrong introduction can turn students off a language for life. Finding an introductory book with just the right pitch and level of difficulty is difficult. Savitch's book seems to fit my needs in this respect. It is accessible, readable and the examples are clear enough for students to work through without having to look over their shoulders continuously. yes, it is a litle on the wordy side, but it is a small defect overall. If you will continue to use C++, Savitch is a firm foundation for moving on to other more advanced texts. The bottom line is that you have to start somewhere in learning programming and this is as good as I have seen in C++.

Savitch offers a solid foundation to C++ programming

I found this book extremely useful for the novice in programming. When I started reading this book, I had no prior experience with programming. By the time I finished the book, I felt I had a solid foundation in C++ and that I had acquired the necessary tools to muster a language like Java without great difficulty. I highly recommend this book if you are new to programming or if you are looking for the basics of C++.

This is how I learned to program in C++

Among the many wonderful things about this book, in addition to it being easy to understand, is that it doesn't confine your learning of C++ to one particular compiler or platform. All the concepts and examples in this book should run fine on any decent C++ compiler. I used Visual C++ myself, but several others in my class used Code Warrior or Mac compilers.Yes, this was my textbook for a beginners programming course and I definitely kept it on my shelf instead of selling it on textbook buyback day at the college bookstore!Do youself a favor if you want to learn C++ and buy this book. It's easy enough to follow that I'm CERTAIN I didn't need to be enrolled in a college course to understand it. It will give you the foundation you will need for UNIX or Windows programming as you become more experienced.And besides all that, it is fun to read and not horribly dull and dry!

Excellent introduction to programming!

Well, finally I found it! The one and only book I needed to learn how to program. And believe me, I've tried a few. The main reason I love this book, is because it's not only a C++ book. It's also a book that teaches you how to think to be able to write programs (in any language). It delivers what it is supposed to deliver; the knowledge on how to program, in C++. On top of all this, you also get to know some of the really cool obscurities of computers and programming, like the origin of the "bug". Buy it, read it and vote for it. It deserves every star it could possibly get!

An excellent introduction to the C++ programming language.

After introducing the most common and fundamental features of any procedural programming language in the first five chapters, the book dives into object oriented programming concepts in chapter 6. Savitch introduces classes to the reader gently and allows the reader to gradually build a sound foundation for studying the C++ language in more detail after he/she has finished reading the book. All the main features of C++ are discussed although some of the subtelties are omitted so as not to overwhelm the reader. This book is an excellent introduction to the C++ programming language and it will probably become a classic for a person taking a first course in the language.
