Now in its fourth edition, C++ Programming: From Problem Analysis to Program Design remains the definitive text for CS1 courses. Best-selling author D.S. Malik employs a student-focused approach, using complete programming examples to teach introductory programming concepts. This fourth edition has been enhanced to further demonstrate the use of OOD methodology, to introduce sorting algorithms (bubble sort and insertion sort), and to present additional material on abstract classes. In addition, the exercise sets at the end of each chapter have been expanded to include several calculus and engineering-related exercises. All programs have been written, compiled, and quality-assurance tested with Microsoft Visual C++ .NET, available as an optional compiler with this text. C++ Programming: From Problem Analysis to Program Design, Fourth Edition is the ideal text to motivate your students as they learn the theory behind programming.

This is THE best book on programming I've ever read. Before that book I hated programming, now I love it (C++ still more than other languages).
