C++ for Java Programmers by Mark A. Weiss (2003-05-01) Reviews
Das Buch ist super geschrieben und fuehrt einen wirklich gut in C++ ein, wenn man Java schon kann. Es bringt Anfaengern sogar den ein oder anderen Aspekt ueber Java bei, den sie evlt. noch nicht kannten.Beim Preis haette man noch ein bisschen runter gehen koennen, war schließlich gebraucht (nur leichte Gebrauchsspuren). Sonst bin ich sehr zufrieden.
Ich arbeite an einem Niederländische Hochschule und überwege um diesem Buch zu gebrauchen für C++ Seminar. Das einzige an diesem Buch wass nicht so gut ist, da' gesprochen wird über einem frühere Version der Sprache Java.
I started programming in Java, so jumping into a language like C++ was quite difficult for me (as I only had two semesters of programming under my belt at the time). This book was fairly to the point in terms of examples. It's a short book, so it's an easy read with minimal jargan and examples. It should definitely be treated as a brief introductory type of book... compared to the C++ book that Bjarne Stroustrup wrote, it's a mere stickie note. If you are just trying to wrap your head around the basic concepts of C++, it's a good start, however you may not feel like you got your monies worth in terms of the quantity of information for the price.
This book is horribly out of date. If you have a professor that asked you to get this for a class, kindly inform him/her that this book is out of date. Waste of money for anyone in a year later than 2005.
Although C++ is definitely on the decline, it will be a major force in the programming world for years to come. This book is an excellent intro to the language taught specifically for a person with some Java experience, and it does do an effective job of comparing and contrasting the two languages. The analogies, I feel are invaluable to understanding abstract concepts in C++, and the approach is better than starting from the ground up, if you understand Java at a fundamental level. I also have to disagree with the reviewer below: the writing is quite good, it's concise and not excessively technical. I suspect that that reviewer is unfamiliar with contemporary texts on computer science, because this is one of the more readable ones I know.Although the latter few chapters were not, I feel, exceptionally helpful, the book is a much better and lighter (not to mention cheaper) alternative to others out there, and is quite worth it, in every way.
If you already know anything about C++ don't read this book. This is an out of date C++ book written by a Java programmer who has a negative view of the C++ language. Throughout the entire book the author constantly attempts to point out pitfalls in the C++ language while making claims about Java's superior approach; it was very annoying.
I know java, and had to learn C++ quick for a class. This book did the job.
