In Starting Out with C++: From Control Structures through Objects, Brief Edition, 7e, Gaddis takes a problem-solving approach, inspiring students to understand the logic behind developing quality programs while introducing the C++ programming language. This style of teaching builds programming confidence and enhances each students development of programming skills. This edition in the Starting Out Series covers the core programming concepts that are introduced in the first semester introductory programming course. 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 book includes the first 15 chapters from the best-selling Starting Out with C++: From Control Structures through Objects, and covers the core programming concepts that are introduced in the first semester introductory programming course.
Control structures, functions, arrays, and pointers are covered before objects and classes.
A clear and student-friendly writing style simplifies programming processes for beginning programmers with two to three stepped-out examples following each major concept.
Concise real-world examples that students understand and relate to foster motivation and retention.
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.
Case Studies, Programming Challenges, and Group Projects simulate real-world applications and present real-world problems to be solve
