The Beginners Guide to C++ is by far the best one. Not only does the book explain how to do things almost perfectly, but it explains why and how it works. Teen and Young Adult. Literature & Fiction. Mystery & Thriller.

The Beginner's Guide to C++ eliminates the complexity of C++ by introducing classes in manageable bits. Yaroshenko is a master of the -school of teaching: He marks "Try it out!" on every other page and features a simple problem to illustrate a recently introduced concept. This huge volume is one of the more unorthodox works in the C++ genre

This book is an excellent book for people who wish to learn C++. I have programmed for a large portion of my life using other languages such as FORTRAN, Basic, etc.. But I was getting outdated and needed to come up to speed quick. This book is concise, easy to understand and teaches the language with easy and clear examples to try. I would recommend this for someone who has programmed before and want to learn C++.
I wouldn't recommend this book to an absolute beginner to programming. It requires a little knowledge of programming to be useful.

Also, while the book does a good job teaching C++ it doesn't do enough to teach the fundamentals of object oriented design, and alot of the programs require compilers/operating systems that many people don't have.

Finally, the book doesn't offer any exersices to the reader. Something I find very helpful in the learning of any programming language.
I'm 15, and I understood evey concept in this book. I've read many others which confuse you with a lot of technical words, but not this one. They do define everything with the same technical jargan, but then they go back and explain all the examples almost line by line to show you how all the parts fit together. I would definately tell anyone interested in starting programming to use this book to build a rock-solid understanding of the workings of C++
nice item, thanks
I bought this book with the intention of expanding my knowledge of C programming to C++. Primarily to as a stepping stone to Windows programming books that use the advanced features of C++ over C. However I cannot recommend this book for several reasons. The author explains the importance of good C++ programming style and then contradicts himself by declaring variables on the fly at any point in the code. I also found his wording to be very difficult to understand and found myself periodically re-reading sentences that do not seem to make sense, especially when he uses vocabulary that beginners may not have come across. This book does have its good points. It has a detailed explanation of Object Orientated Programming and does have a very up-front approach when it comes to some of the more complex syntax. Rather then buying this book I would recommend a total beginner to start off by learning C using a book like C for Dummies Vol1&2 and then buying a more a more specific book on C++ and OOP.
This is by far the WORST book I've read on programming. By the second chapter the book deviates from the ANSI C++ standard, using commands left over from C that can cause conflicts in more advanved programs, utilizes blatently sloppy programming technique (again okay for now- but will cause big problems later), and introduces very advanced concepts before the most basic of programming skills is mastered. My biggest problem with this text is that, to work properly, almost all of the example programs require header files that are not available in any standard distribution (g++, for example). What good is an example if you can't get it to work? I don't know who the above reviews came from- as an Engineering major at Duke University, I can now look back and wonder how I ever got anywhere trying to learn from this horrible book. My recommendation would be to go to your local college text book store and ask for whatever it is they use for introductory C++ programming. Good luck!
I was looking for a good text that would help me with my transition from C to C++. I bought this book after reading raving reviews of it here on amazon.com. After spending several weeks with the book I must admit that I am very dissapointed. In my opinion, the text lacks logical organization of key concepts. Moreover, the author spreads explanations of related concepts all over the book, making it hard to find the needed information. A good example of this is the introduction of loops. Yaroshenko stretches this concept across 4 chapters making it a pain for a beginner to keep focused. As a closing remark I would like to warn beginners about this book. It offers no clear explanation of key C++ features and lacks any exercises. After struggling with this book for a few weeks you will be frustrated and never want to tackle programming again.
If you are a total beginner, you might want to learn C first. (Look for Greg Perry's "Absolute Beginner's Guide to C") Although this book has "Beginner" as the title, that's not what it actually means...
If you're a C programmer like me and wants to know what's all the hype about C++, then better get this book. This book smoothens the transition from C to C++.
By the end of every chapter, there is always a working program built from scratch using all the knowledge you've gained from previous chapter(s).
And guess what? By the end of the book, you'll know how to use Borland Graphic Interface (BGI) and create a simple (but marvellous) DOS game "Typing-Tutor": it's like a simplified DOS version of "Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing Deluxe"
Although this book is quite dated, you can always catch up with ANSI standard by reading more advanced books. I finished this and I'm going to skim through Ivon Horton's "Beginning C++ (ANSI/ISO Compliant)" and then to Andrew Koenig & Barbara Moo's "Accelerated C++".
Why? Well, Ivor Horton's book has many exercises and well-explained solutions. While Moo's Accel. C++ has plenty unsolved exercised for you to do. So when you get to Moo's book, you'll know how to solve these exercises already.
