Verified Purchase. Every author has his own bias toward what should be covered, and when, so I don't think any one book can cover everything in depth. You might need do a little casting to take care of warnings, but that's just a nit. The source for programs mentioned in the book are on the CD, zipped.

I plan on extracting them to a folder on my computer as I reach the appropriate chapter. I liked this book enough that I've ordered the 2nd volume, even though I've barely started the book. September 23, - Published on Amazon. It may be a little dated my copy says C , but I don't think the Standard has evolved since his writing. The Good: Bruce does a terrific job going into gory detail on all aspects of this let's just face it complicated language. The book does a fairly decent job in going from the simpler to the more advanced concepts, though a few times he has to use constructs that will only be covered in later chapters Bruce does point out these outlooks though appropriately.
If you are really into learning a new language, the Exercises at the end of each chapter are a terrific way to learn the new concepts. The Bad: The text within the chapters is not very well structured. Also, any Audio books for my game like when you into a area it starts playing that song.
Could be his style, his code, or everything taken together. Wouldn't know about JME, but there almost certainly are as games are one of the main uses of modile phone applications : Try "Developing Games in Java" by David Brackeen, ISBN But as a beginning Java programmer you should first learn the language before diving into more complex things like graphics and game code.

Thinking in C++, 2nd ed. Volume 1 - Index
Insert Code Block. Share Post. When you break down the walls of "i'm an z programmer", then you will realize that your mental skills transend the language, and your a problem solver, with debugging skills. I used the 2nd edition of this book which had a lot of code errors, although I found that finding the errors was also an excellent unintended learning experience , even if it did take me longer to get through the book and cause some undo frustration.
Pretty much every topic is backed up with code examples, which really helps me - a hands on type of person. I took extra time and went over some sections more than once to get a good hold on the info, especially pointers and the object oriented sections like inheritance and polymorphism. I know feel like I have a very good understanding of how they work. This is definitely a masterpiece! It's always difficult to write a review about such a good book. But let me explain And I decided to start learning from the very beginning. But finally I made my choice. Why did I do that? Because this book was written by Teacher.
It's very easy to read and understand, but in spite of simplicity it's really comprehensive.
Every word is on it's place, every example of source code is well thought-out. I have seen some reviews blaming this book for something, but I'm sure - if you have some brain and are ready to think and learn this book will help you. Starts Well, Gets Confusing , March 25, Reviewer: Geoff Thornton see more about me from Oakey, Australia The book starts well enough for the first several chapters and gives good examples that are relevant to the topic. However as the book progresses the author delves very quickly into complex programming examples and explanations that gloss over a lot of subject matter and soon leave the begginer scratching his head.
His examples and easily read text gave me the knowledge to read code, and more important to understand it. Particularly interesting to me was memory management and why I should be concerned about it. I no longer bang out code that "just" works. I assimilate the books ideas into programs that one may call an art form. You will never know how grateful I am to have this book as a resource. I have scribbled in the margins, highlighted, dog-eared, paper clipped important pages, made a file of example programs and on long study nights used it as a pillow. If you don't have prior programming experience this book is a must.
If you are a C programmer you need this book to get with the new way of doing programming! This is the book to work with if you're just starting out. As with most disciplines, everything builds on the basics, so go slow and make sure you understand all of the material before moving on. All of the basics are covered most thoroughly and are very understandable. In fact there's now a Linux version available. Highly recommended! This is actually a book in two volumes.
Table of Contents
Bruce Eckel has done a great job with the book. He clearly has put some thought into how to structure the book, and it shows with each chapter focused on one major topic. However, I have two minor problems with the book. The order of the chapters could probably be revamped; inheritance and composition are only introduced in chapter 14, way too late IMO. If you are the type of programmer who likes to get writing code straight away, this book is not for you. Also, I think some of the examples and exercises are bit trival and boring, but that could be due to Bruce's aim to keep everything simple and understandable, and let the reader find the "real world" problems.
The content of this book is definately top notch, however presentation of this material isn't ideal for a computer novice.
- 3. thinking in c++ (volume 1, 2nd edition);
- title=C++ Programming: "Dead tree" books on C++.
- The hidden implementation!
Not to say its unreadable, but it leaves some gaps. The order that the topics are presented is not useful for either novices or experienced C programmers. Yes, there's a lot of material in there, but it is disconnected such that to teach a subject thoroughly requires tedious and non-intuitive jumping around in the book. To require two volumes to teach the rudiments of the language is an indication that something is wrong with the author's approach. Along the same lines, the author's style is long and drawn out. The two volumes probably could have been put into one more effective volume without all the distractions the author puts into the text.
On a personal note, I have never liked the author's writing style in his previous books, though I respect his depth of knowledge and intent. What does Call by Reference mean? But, you will never change the address of any storage object this way.
