Do not waste your money on this book, it does not teach Object Oriented Programming and the programming examples are a mishmash of C and poor C++. For example:
- l I would expect a book on OO, when trying to illustrate code diagrammatically, to use some form of class diagram - this book uses flowcharts.
- l float is used almost exclusively for scientific calculations, even when using library functions that operate on doubles.
- l Pre-processor macros have no place in C++ code; the author seems to like them.
- l The STL is not introduced until 80% of the way through the book.
I strongly suspect the author is Fortran programmer and has just translated to C++ with the addition of OO to increase the buzzword count. Not Recommended.
