Description:

Starting Out with C++ Alternate teaches C++ from the ground up, and assumes no prior background in programming. In Starting Out With C++ Alternate, Gaddis makes a very detailed and slow-paced presentation of both programming and C++ syntax concepts so all readers will be able to follow along. This version of the text gives an early introduction to classes and objects. The book includes the hallmark pedagogocial features that readers of Gaddis books have come to expect. Readers who are new to programming, as well as those with prior work in other languages will find this text beneficial.
