C++ for Dummies, 5th Edition | PDF | 411 Pages

Unlike other C++ programming books, C++ For Dummies considers the "why" just as important as the "how." The features of C++ are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Rather than just present the features, this book will help you to really understand how they fit together. After you finish this book, you'll be able to write a reasonable C++ program, and, just as important, you'll understand why and how it works.
C++, as the name implies, is the next generation of the C programming language. The experienced C programmer will find C++ both exciting and frustrating. This book will help you get from C to C++ as painlessly as possible; however, C++ For Dummies, 4th Edition, doesn't assume that the reader knows anything about C language. Anyone, from any programming background, will quickly discover how to
