The C++Course provides a general introduction to programming in C++. It is based on A.B. Downey's book, How to Think Like a Computer Scientist. Click here for details.


This edition of the eBook "C++Course" is based on the well-known book by Allen B. Downey, "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist". The main reason for rearranging the original material was to provide the book not only as a printable copy (i.e. as a PDF file) but also as an indexed and easy-to-navigate electronic book which is available both online and offline. In addition, we focused on enhancing the accessibility of the texts by improving the index, by splitting the chapters into managable (and readable) parts, and by adding lots of "see also" hints and cross links.

Finally, we decided to publish this eBook as an MS Windows HTMLHelp file offering the same navigation structure as the Web-based version. We hope that this service makes it easier for many beginners to learn how to program under C++
