Very good book, great for general reference


I would give this books 5 stars, but the author contradicts himself in a few place so that knocks it down a star. Having said that this book contains some great information and even more importantly really great photos with explainations as to why they author feels they are good or not so good. If the best way to learn to take photos is to see good photos, then this book helps greatly as the photos are throughout the book and not relagated to a few pages at the center.

beginner


I think most of reviewers who wrote reviews for this book are experienced programmers or at least they know how to buy computer books. Well I am a C++ beginner and I bought this book and I've used it for a while. See how a real beginner think. I bought this book 2 months ago when I started programming in C++. Nobody recommended it to me. The reason I decided to buy it because it looked to me that the book was very well organized. Well it really is. When I started reading and practining with it, I found that this book is definitely not for beginners. The autor wrote in preface "Knowledge of the C language is not assumed... this book is intended as a first book on C++; it is not intended as a first book in programming!" I think if he changed to " this book is intended to be used with other C++ books", would be much better because it's really hard to understand C++ by using this book alone. If you use this book as your first book for C++ and you understand well what are presented in the book, you may be one of the following.
1. You hold the head of the department of computer science
2. You just received bronze medal for computer olympic or the like
3. You should found your own software company soon
4. You are cheating
The book starts with a program contained several funtions, followed by processor directives and pointer. I didn't understand most of first 100 pages but when I go to other books and came back to this book, I could understand much better.
However I give this book 5 stars. What I can say is the book is great but not for beginners. Now I have about 12 books on C++ and I regrete that I bought some of these but I never regrete that I bought this book. I think that this book is the best of all I have. Why? Other viewers already mention it all. If you know a litle bit of C or C++ and you are thinking to buy a book, think of this one. You never regret.

Are the book examples written with Visual Studio .net?


Understanding how to interact with databases within the web and .NET paradigms is extremely important to developers these days. I am a co-author of this book, and can say that this book is written by people with a lot of experience creating database-driven web applications. I have managed and coded many mission-critical business apps using SQL and Microsoft's technologies, and wrote from that perspective. I hope you get as much out of this book as we put into it.
