Based on the tenet that good habits are formed early, authors Behrouz Forouzan and Richard Gilberg emphasize the principles of structured programming and software engineering. Every complete program uses a consistent style. As programs are analyzed, styles and standards are further explained. Whenever possible, the authors develop the principle of a subject before they introduce the language implementation so the student understands the concept before dealing with the nuances of C++. Also, the vast array of figures and tables connects visually with students. By integrating software engineering principles and encouraging the student to resist the temptation to immediately code, the text builds a solid foundation in problem solving.
