Starting Out with C++: From Control Structures through Objects, 7th Edition

In Starting Out with C++: From Control Structures through Objects, 7th Edition, Gaddis takes a problem-solving approach, inspiring students to understand the logic behind developing quality programs while introducing the C++ programming language. This style of teaching builds programming confidence and enhances each student’s development of programming skills. This edition in the Starting Out Series covers the core programming concepts that are introduced in the first semester introductory programming course. As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter.

Tony Gaddis’s accessible, step-by-step presentation helps beginning students understand the important details necessary to become skilled programmers at an introductory level. Gaddis motivates the study of both programming skills and the C++ programming language by presenting all the details needed to understand the “how” and the “why” but never losing sight of the fact that most beginners struggle with this material. His approach is both gradual and highly accessible, ensuring that students understand the logic behind developing high-quality programs.

In Starting Out with C++: From Control Structures through Objects, 7th Edition, Gaddis covers control structures, functions, arrays, and pointers before objects and classes. As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter. This text is intended for either a one-semester accelerated introductory course or a traditional two-semester sequence covering C++ programming.

Features:

  • Control structures, functions, arrays, and pointers are covered before objects and classes.
  • A clear and student-friendly writing style simplifies programming processes for beginning programmers with two to three stepped-out examples following each major concept.
  • Concise real-world examples that students understand and relate to foster motivation and retention.
  • A variety of exercises in each chapter encourage students to put concepts to work as they are learned. Source code is provided so students can run the programs themselves.
  • Case Studies, Programming Challenges, and Group Projects simulate real-world applications and present real-world problems to be solved.
  • VideoNotes, created by author Tony Gaddis, provide extra examples and demonstrate how to solve problems. Icons throughout the text-two to three per chapter-indicate that a Video Note accompanies a particular topic.
  • Tony Gaddis’s best-selling Starting Out with series of textbooks provides accessible, detailed presentations of programming concepts using an approach that will increase confidence and competence in novice programmers. The Starting Out with series, which includes books on Alice, Python, Visual Basic, C++, Java, and Programming Logic & Design. View other titles in the series at the Gaddis Books website.
