Summary

Summary

With C++ gaining a stronghold in the engineering and scientific communities, Bronson's book makes C++ accessible to first level engineering students. Featuring a wealth of practical, engineering-oriented examples and applications, the book teaches the fundamentals of the C++ language with a gradual refinement of programming skills from a procedural to an object orientation. Part One presents procedural programming with an emphasis on modular program design, and helps readers understand the importance of writing programs that can be easily modified and maintained. Part Two on object-oriented programming and Part Three on data structures are interchangeable for teaching flexibility. Problem solving techniques, software engineering, and completed applications are emphasized throughout.
