A Reorganized and Updated Edition of the Bestselling, Definitive C++ Text
The bestselling Programming and Problem Solving with C++ is the single clearest and most comprehensive introduction to C++, object-oriented programming, and software development on the market. Accessible enough for beginning students, this text has been accepted by hundreds of colleges and universities around the world as a model text for the ACM/IEEE-recommended curricula for CS1 courses and for the Advanced Placement exam in computer science. Renowned author team Nell Dale and Chip Weems’s student-centered, pragmatic, and hands-on approach focuses on making even the most difficult concepts in computer science programming accessible to all students.
Comprehensive and student-friendly, Programming and Problem Solving with C++, Sixth Edition remains the definitive text for introductory computer science programming courses.
Every new printed copy of the text is packaged with full student access to Turing's Craft Custom CodeLab. Customized to match the organization of the text, CodeLab offers students hands-on C++ programming experience. The student types in code and the system immediately judges its correctness, offering hints when the submission is incorrect.
A Brief Edition (978-1-284-02864-5) is available for the one-term course.
