A Concise Edition of the Definitive C++ Text Suitable for One-Term Courses
This concise and consolidated edition of the bestselling Programming and Problem Solving with C++ was developed in response to the need for a text that covered only what students and instructors are able to move through in a single semester. Sacrificing none of the breadth and detail of the comprehensive edition, the Brief Edition retains Dale and Weems's trademark accessible and hands-on style. Highly relevant real-world examples and strong pedagogical features will engage students as they build key skills and absorb critical concepts. The text's student-focused approach makes even the most difficult concepts in computer science programming accessible to all students.
Expanded and reorganized, Programming and Problem Solving with C++: Brief, Sixth Edition presents advanced topics at the introductory level and is the ideal text for one-term introductory computer science programming courses.
New and Key Features:
- Includes new programming exercises and new, more student-friendly organization of material
- Provides new discussion of Pointers and expanded discussion of C-Strings
- Features strong pedagogical elements, including real-world case studies and highly relevant exercises that reinforce key concepts and build crucial skills
