Sams Teach Yourself C++ in One Hour a Day (Sams Teach Yourself)
This book is designed to help you teach yourself how to program with C++. Just as you can learn to walk one step at a time, you can learn to program in C++ one hour at a time. Each lesson in this book has been designed so that you can read the entire lesson in just an hour a day. It lays emphasis on the practical usage of the language, and helps you get up-to-speed with concepts that are most important in writing C++ applications for real-world usage.
By focusing for just an hour a day at a time, you'll learn about such fundamentals as managing input and output, loops and arrays, object-oriented programming, templates, using the standard template library, and creating C++ applications—all in well-structured and easy-to-follow lessons. Lessons provide sample listings—complete with sample output and an analysis of the code—to illustrate the topics of the day.
To help you become more proficient, each lesson ends with a set of common questions and answers, a quiz, and exercises. You can check your progress by examining the quiz and exercise answers provided in Appendix D, "Answers."
