About the book: A clear and student-friendly way to teach the fundamentals of C++

Starting Out with C++: From Control Structures through Objects covers control structures, functions, arrays, and pointers before objects and classes in Tony Gaddis’s hallmark accessible, step-by-step presentation.

His books help beginning students understand the important details necessary to become skilled programmers at an introductory level. Gaddis motivates the study of both programming skills and the C++ programming language by presenting all the details needed to understand the “how” and the “why”–but never losing sight of the fact that most beginners struggle with this material. His approach is gradual and highly accessible, ensuring that students understand the logic behind developing high-quality programs. As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter. Updates to the 9th Edition include revised, improved problems throughout and a new chapter featuring completely rewritten and expanded material on the Standard Template Library (STL).

Features & benefits
  • Written with clear, easy-to-understand language, and rich with example programs that are concise, practical, and real-world oriented.
  • The hundreds of Example Programs in the text are designed to highlight the topic currently being studied. Source code for these programs is provided so that students can run the programs themselves.
  • Students not only learn how to implement the features and constructs of C++, but why and when to use them.
  • Teaches C++ in a step-by-step fashion. Each chapter covers a major set of topics and builds knowledge as the student progresses through the book but still allows for flexibility past Chapter 7.
  • The material on the Standard Template Library (STL) has been completely rewritten and expanded into its own chapter.
  • Concept Statements, Checkpoints, Notes, and Warnings throughout the book all call out important pieces of information for the student
  • Program Output is a sample of its screen output shown after each example program. This immediately shows the student how the program should function.
  • In the Spotlight sections provides a programming problem and a detailed, step by step analysis showing the student how to solve it.
  • VideoNotes developed specifically for this book. Icons appear throughout the text alerting the student to videos about specific topics. Students can follow along with the author as he works through each tutorial in the videos.
  • C++ Quick Reference Guide is printed on the last two pages of Appendix C in the book to provide a quick, easy reference to the C++ language.
  • C++11 language features are introduced throughout the text with C++11 icons identifying the new features.
