This text is intended for either a one-semester accelerated introductory course or a traditional two-semester sequence covering C++ programming. 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++: From Control Structures through Objects, Gaddis covers control structures, functions, arrays, and pointers before objects and classes. 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. Teaching and Learning Experience This program presents a better teaching and learning experience-for you and your students. It will help: * Enhance Learning with the Gaddis Approach: Gaddis's accessible approach features clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise real-world examples, and exercises in every chapter. * Keep Your Course Current: This edition introduces many of the new C++11 language features. * Support Instructors and Students: Student and instructor resources are available to expand on the topics presented in the text.
