Title: Beginning Visual C++ 6
Publisher: Wrox
Authors: Ivor Horton
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
A nice Visual C++ book for all level programmer.


This book is actually 2 books in one cover which can be purchased separately. The first is a tutorial on C++ and the second on Visual C++ and MFC. Even though I have studied C++ a bit I thought I would buy this one for a review (and to cover what I didn't already know).
I found the C++ tutorials to be excellent. Probably the best of any computer related book I've read. I was able to easily follow the topics that were grouped in logical order. All examples were concise and found no errors which weren't immediately obvious.
I've just begun the Visual C++/MFC sections of the book (though I've skimmed it a bit). These look to be a great start with the foundation presented from the previous chapters. This will probably not be your last book on the topic but will certainly get you going in the right direction.
This book has made me seek out other books by Mr. Horton and strongly consider Wrox. The book is pretty big but there's lots of info there and lots of good examples. Even though I'm a programmer by profession, I consider myself a C++ beginner and couldn't imagine a better resource for learning MS Visual C++.

Classic


This is a really neat book because of who wrote it and it's value to the history of Unix. It's a good read and very informative.
However, if you want to learn or get up to speed on Unix/Linux, this is not the book unless you are into Unix programming. Yes Unix is basically the same now as then but it has gone through some major evolving with different tools and servers. Check out my list of Unix books for learning Unix.

Provides crucial SCM translations


The authors provide useful generic definitions of the critical SCM patterns. They go onto provide direct mappings between specific tool vocabulary and the patterns. This mapping has been instrumental in establishing a common SCM vocabulary in cross division projects. SCM education and planning are greatly streamlined due to this important translation. "Patterns"is an essential dictionary on all SCM adventures.

Easy to read and digest.


This is a great book with so many answers for questions I had for long time. The DSNless techniques and many other tricks I never knew before , made hard things possible..
