Synopses & Reviews
Now in its fourth edition, C++ Programming: From Problem Analysis to Program Design remains the definitive text for CS1 courses. Best-selling author D.S. Malik employs a student-focused approach, using complete programming examples to teach introductory 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 several calculus and engineering-related exercises. All programs have been written, compiled, and quality-assurance tested with Microsoft Visual C++ .NET, available as an optional compiler with this text. C++ Programming: From Problem Analysis to Program Design, Fourth Edition is the ideal text to motivate your students as they learn the theory behind programming.
Synopsis
C++ PROGRAMMING: FROM PROBLEM ANALYSIS TO PROGRAM DESIGN, FIFTH EDITION, is the latest edition of the definitive text for CS1 courses. Author D.S. Malik continues to employ his student-focused, example-based methodology to teach C++ programming to introductory computing students. Each chapter includes new debugging sections, a wealth of new and updated exercises, and many helpful self-study tools such as complete programming examples. All syntax is explained thoroughly and reinforced through extensive examples and diagrams, and students are motivated to understand the "why?" behind key C++ concepts.
