An excellent text for a pre-Computer Science II class. The textbook was clear, concise, easy to understand for me, and the exercises really helped to emphasize the major points of each chapter. Most importantly, it is the most error free text I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I was amazed how fast I received my textbook. I ordered this textbook a two weeks before my class and I got it before my class began.






Data Structures and Other Objects Using C++: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

Data Structures and Other Objects Using C++ takes a gentle approach to the data structures course in C++. Providing an early, self-contained review of object-oriented programming and C++, this text gives students a firm grasp of key concepts and allows those experienced in another language to adjust easily. Flexible by design, professors have the option of emphasizing object-oriented programming, covering recursion and sorting early, or accelerating the pace of the course. Finally, a solid foundation in building and using abstract data types is also provided, along with an assortment of advanced topics such as B-trees for project building and graphs.

This book successfully balances the introduction of object-oriented concepts with data structures in C++.

KEY TOPICS:

Provides interfaces for the principal example classes, which are compliant with the ANSI/ISO C++ Standard Library classes. Thorough coverage of the role of the const keyword in the C++ Standard Library. Covers C++ features such as namespaces, static member constants, typename keyword, and inheritance.

Thorough review of C++ syntax and OOP concepts, making book accessible for programmers at various levels. The book also gives readers a firm grasp of key concepts and allows programmers experienced in another language to adjust easily.

A solid foundation in building and using abstract data types is also provided, along with an assortment of advanced topics such as B-trees for project building and graphs. This book is designed for novice programmers who have learned the concepts of objects and classes and want to move on to the data structures topics of recursion and data abstraction.
