C++ in a Nutshell

To-the-point, authoritative, no-nonsense solutions have always been a trademark of O’Reilly books. The In a Nutshell books have earned a solid reputation in the field as the well-thumbed references that sit beside the knowledgeable developer’s keyboard. C++ in a Nutshell lives up to the In a Nutshell promise. C++ in a Nutshell is a lean, focused reference that offers practical examples for the most important, most often used, aspects of C++.


Exploring C++ 11, 2nd Edition

Exploring C++ divides C++ up into bite-sized chunks that will help you learn the language one step at a time. Assuming no familiarity with C++, or any other C-based language, you’ll be taught everything you need to know in a logical progression of small lessons that you can work through as quickly or as slowly as you need.


Exploring C++

This is a book about learning by doing and is aimed at programmers familiar with programming, but not C++. The key exercises are not simply listed at the end of the chapter, but are integrated into the main text. Readers work hands-on throughout the book. Each lesson poses numerous questions, asking readers to write answers directly in the book. The book includes answers to all questions, so readers can check their work. These exercises are not simple cookbook-style recipes (e.g., “Write a program to do xyz”). Instead, they are explorations―structured labs that guide readers through a series of steps to highlight specific features of C++.
