Synopses & Reviews
C++ PROGRAMMING: PROGRAM DESIGN INCLUDING DATA STRUCTURES remains the definitive text for the CS1/CS1 course sequence. In this new fifth edition, D.S. Malik continues to employ his user-focused, example-based methodology to teach C++ Programming to introductory computing users. Changes to this edition include new debugging sections in each chapter and a multitude of new and updated exercises. All syntax is explained thoroughly and reinforced through extensive examples and diagrams, and each chapter is full of helpful self-study tools such as complete programming examples. C++ PROGRAMMING: PROGRAM DESIGN INCLUDING DATA STRUCTURES will motivate to users to understand the "why?" behind key C++ concepts.
Synopsis
Now in its fourth edition, C++ Programming: Program Design Including Data Structures remains the definitive text for a course sequence covering CS1 and CS2 topics. Best-selling author D.S. Malik employs a student-focused approach, using complete programming examples to teach fundamental programming concepts. This fourth edition has been enhanced to further demonstrate the use of OOD methodology, to introduce sorting algorithms (bubble sort and insertion sort), and to present additional material on abstract classes. In addition, the exercise sets at the end of each chapter have been expanded to include calculus and engineering-related exercises.
