Scientific Approach to Problem Solving

With C++ Programming (First Edition)
By Sal Washah, Ph.D.

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-62661-472-7, 320 pages


A Scientific Approach to Problem-Solving with C++ Programming teaches the basic concepts needed to master C++, illustrating every building block of the programming language. The book provides practical information such as style guidance, debugging, and real-world, coherent programming advice.

Initially, readers get an overview of C++, and its integration into software development. The book then discusses the basics of C++ including variables, data types, constants, operators, and basic input/output.

Subsequent chapters address control structures, functions, arrays, and pointers. The book concludes with Class I and II object-oriented programming.

In addition, the book features numerous program examples, easy-to-understand figures, summary reference tables, and appendices.

The material is accessible to those new to the language, and adds information and techniques for those who are already experts in C++ programming. A Scientific Approach to Problem-Solving can be used in courses on introductory programming, computer science, and C++ programming. It is also useful addition to introductory engineering classes.
