Great introductory book, but...little OOP
This comment is in reference to the 6th edition.
Good info in the appendices. Don't ignore the online appendices D or E.
After having been away from programming for a number of years, I am attempting to update my skills. This is a great book for new or returning programmers to (re-)establish a good foundation in programming concepts.
I chose C++ in order to also study object oriented programming. This book has 14 chapters that barely touch on OOP but give a good foundation on functional programming with C++ constructs. There is an appendix that discusses Object Oriented Terminology but it assumes the 14 chapters have been covered first. Only after learning a bit about OOP have I been able to recognize the places in the text where it has been referenced.
My comments are based on input from an instructor. He suggested that I should probably study another OOP language like Java before going on to the second course in C++ since I may not be appropriately prepared for the OOP in it. Apparently the school will be choosing a different text soon.
Rather pricy text too.
