Great effort for beginner!
To IT students, C++ is a real tough subject. This book provide sufficient detail about the methodolgy of solving the problem. Compared to other text books(involoving too much library template), this book is real big hit for fresh guys.

good book for novice
This book is a good text for novice programmers. Although it sometimes goes into too much details (a bit wordy), it explains everything clearly. The examples given in the book are easy to understand and the layout and printing format are good. Since it is for beginners, it contains almost all basics however doesn't include much advanced stuffs.

Fire professors who use this book!
This book is about the worst thing you could throw at a beginning student.
I suggest that you fire any professor who uses this text! C++ is a HUGE topic. A beginner needs to get a grasp around a subset of the syntax before they are introduced to all the hard details and nitty-gritty. This books goes into too many details when it should be more coherent and simplified.
There are much better books available, such as Savitch's "Absolute C++," which is not only far more coherent, but actually uses a color OTHER THAN BLUE.
If you are going to use this book, I suggest changing schools first.
