Want to learn how to program in C++ immediately? Want to start writing better, more powerful C++ programs today? Accelerated C++'s uniquely modern approach will help you learn faster and more fluently than you ever believed possible. Based on the authors' intensive summer C++ courses at Stanford University, Accelerated C++ covers virtually every concept that most professional C++ programmers will ever use -- but it turns the "traditional" C++ curriculum upside down, starting with the high-level C++ data structures and algorithms that let you write robust programs immediately. Once you're getting results, Accelerated C++ takes you "under the hood," introducing complex language features such as memory management in context, and explaining exactly how and when to use them. From start to finish, the book concentrates on solving problems, rather than learning language and library features for their own sake. The result: You'll be writing real-world programs in no time -- and outstanding code faster than you ever imagined.

Back cover copy

"This is a first-rate introductory book that takes a practical approach to solving problems using C++. It covers a much wider scope of C++ programming than other introductory books I've seen, and in a surprisingly compact format. " --Dag Bruck, founding member of the ANSI/ISO C++ committee "The authors present a clear, cogent introduction to C++ programming in a way that gets the student writing nontrivial programs immediately." --Stephen Clamage, Sun Microsystems, Inc., and chair of the ANSI C++ committee "Anyone reading just this one book and working through the examples and exercises will have the same skills as many professional programmers." --Jeffrey D. Oldham, Stanford University Why is "Accelerated C++" so effective? Because it Starts with the most useful concepts rather than the most primitive ones: "You can begin writing programs immediately." Describes real problems and solutions, not just language features: "You see not only what each feature is, but also how to use it." Covers the language and standard library together: "You can use the library right from the start." The authors proved this approach in their professional-education course at Stanford University, where students learned how to write substantial programs on their first day in the classroom. Whether you are eager to get started writing your first C++ programs, or you are already using C++ and seeking deeper understanding, the authors' unique approach and expertise make "Accelerated C++" an indispensable addition to your library. 020170353XB04062001 "
