- Common Errors describe the kinds of errors that programmers often make, with an explanation of why the errors occur, and what to do about them.
- Quality Tips explain good programming practices. Since most of them require an initial investment of effort, these notes carefully motivate the reason behind the advice and explain why the effort will be repaid later.
- Productivity Hints teach programmers how to use their tools more effectively, familiarizing them with tricks of the trade such as keyboard shortcuts, global search and replace, or automation of common tasks with scripts.
- Learn computer science principles and not just C++ - The authors use the C++ programming language as a vehicle for introducing solid computer science concepts. Although it covers a large subset of the C++ language, the book focuses on the modern features of the C++ standard, such as the string class and the STL containers.
- Gain a deeper understanding through the book?s spiral approach - The authors make C++ more accessible to beginners by starting with the essential facts that illustrate a concept, then adding technical details to deepen understanding of the foundational concept.
- Learn C++ as an object-oriented language - Objects are introduced in two stages. From Chapter 2 on, readers learn to use objects?in particular, strings, streams, instances of the simple time and employee classes, and graphical shapes. Starting in Chapter 5, readers learn how to implement classes and member functions. From then on, objects and classes are used as the natural building blocks of computer programs.
