Features & benefits
A clear and student-friendly introduction to C++
  • Savitch’s clear, concise style is a hallmark feature of the text, receiving praise from students and instructors alike.
  • A flexible coverage of objects means that instructors can easily adapt the order in which chapters and sections are covered in their course without losing continuity. A dependency chart in the preface offers a quick reference for instructors who wish to rearrange coverage.
  • Advanced topic coverage includes discussions of C++ templates, inheritance (including virtual functions), and exception handling, plus a full chapter on the Standard Template Library (STL).
  • This edition is fully compatible with compilers that meet the latest ANSI/ISO C++ standard. At the time of this writing the latest standard is C++14.
  • REVISED! Corrections of errata and edits for clarity have been made, such as indicating preferred methods for file I/O, naming of terminology, a better definition of encapsulation, and removing material that is now standard in C++11 and higher.
  • NEW! camelCase notation, rather than underscore_case, is used consistently throughout the text.
Tried-and-True Pedagogy
  • Concise, easy-to-understand programming examples, projects, exercises, tips, and pitfalls benefit student understanding.
  • Boxed sections summarise major points and are spread throughout each chapter.
  • Numerous Self-Test Exercises are contained at strategic points in each chapter. Complete answers for all the Self-Test Exercises are given at the end of each chapter.
  • End-of-chapter programs are split into Practice Programs and Programming Projects.
  • Practice Programs require a direct application of concepts presented in the chapter and solutions are usually short. Practice Programs are appropriate for laboratory exercises.
  • Programming Projects require additional problem solving and solutions are generally longer than Practice Programs. Programming Projects are appropriate for homework problems.
  • NEW! Ten new Programming Projects have been added.
