Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 24 Hours teaches C++ as a first programming language through short, simple chapters that can be completed in no more than an hour each.

Friendly, accessible, and conversational, this book offers a practical grounding in the language, without ever becoming overwhelming or intimidating. Readers master key concepts, syntax, and techniques through short, practical examples — from installing and using a compiler, to debugging the programs created, to what’s coming in C++0x, the next version of C++.

Each lesson builds on what readers have already learned, giving them a solid understanding of the basics of C++ programming concepts and techniques.

  • Step-by-step instructions carefully walk the beginner through the most common C++ programming tasks

  • Quizzes and exercises at the end of each chapter help to test understanding before going on

  • Starter kit software on the CD provides everything needed to create and compile C++ programs on any platform — Windows, Mac or Linux
