Now in its third edition, Bronson’s C++ for Engineers and Scientists makes C++ accessible to first-level engineering students as C++ maintains its stronghold in engineering and scientific communities. The text continues to take a pragmatic approach that incorporates actual engineering and science problems for its applications and examples. Students begin with a foundation in procedural programming, moving into object-oriented concepts in the second half of the text. This new edition also offers new case studies and an expanded selection of examples from a variety of fields including thermodynamics, optics, and fluid mechanics.

This book is hard to follow even with a programming background and on top of it uses code that is not working in order to teach people how to code.This is a big problem in a class having little to no programming at all for a background. The assignments also use the form " An engineer " blah blah blah programmed this code . it does nothing more to describe the code that is wanted even in pseudo-code. The socalled UML in the book is only flow charts and if it is UML is it not to UML standered form. This being the forth edition of the book and there are still tons of programming errors. I having only used this book one semester have offered to burn the book as I note the errors in the programming and the Layout of the book. When you write a book for people that have never seen a working program before never ever use crap code to show what to program. This is a waist of time for them and for those poor trees that gave there life for the book to be printed,...
This book is worse then just trying to program without a book.
good luck if you have to use it in a class setting.
