Tony Gaddis’s accessible, step-by-step presentation helps beginning students understand the important details necessary to become skilled programmers at an introductory level. Gaddis motivates the study of both programming skills and the C++ programming language by presenting all the details needed to understand the “how” and the “why”—but never losing sight of the fact that most beginners struggle with this material. His approach is both gradual and highly accessible, ensuring that students understand the logic behind developing high-quality programs.In Starting Out with C++: Early Objects, Gaddis covers objects and classes early after functions and before arrays and pointers. As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter. This text is intended for either a one-semester accelerated introductory course or a traditional two-semester sequence covering C++ programming.
1 . Classes are introduced in Chapter 7, right after control structures and functions.
2 . Procedural and object-oriented programming is covered with advanced OOP topics, recursion, linked lists, stacks, queues, and binary trees included in later chapters.
3 . Tony Gaddis’s best-selling Starting Out with series of textbooks provides accessible, detailed presentations of programming concepts using an approach that will increase confidence and competence in novice programmers.
4 . A clear and student-friendly writing style with stepped-out explanations simplifies concepts for beginning programmers.
5 . Concise, practical, and real-world examples—over 350 in the entire book—that students understand and relate to foster motivation and retention.
6 . A variety of exercises in each chapter encourage students to put concepts to work as they are learned. Source code is provided so students can run the programs themselves.
7 . Each new copy of the Sixth Edition comes with a Student Resource Disk that includes answers to all Checkpoint questions, answers to odd-numbered Review Questions and
8 . Exercises, source code, additional case studies with source code, all appendices, and the Borland Software.
9 . An online Lab Manual is available to students and instructors at CS Support and in MyCodeMate.
10 . MyCodeMate, available for the Sixth Edition, is a Web-based, textbook-specific homework tool and programming resource for an introduction to programming course. It provides a wide range of tools that students can use to help them learn programming concepts, prepare for tests, and earn better grades in the introductory programming course. An online Lab Manual is available in MyCodeMate for students and instructors.Students can work on programming problems from this text or homework problems created by their professors, and receive guided hints with page references and English explanations of compiler errors. Instructors can assign textbook-specific or self-created homework problems, preset style attributes, view students’ code and class compiler error logs, and track homework completion. A complimentary subscription is offered when an access code is ordered packaged with a new copy of this text. Subscriptions may also be purchased online. For more information visit MyCodeMate.
