Additional Books : C++ Gui programming with QT4
April 26, 2007 07:18PM
Hi Guys

I have done C++ programming before but it's not my strongest subject and i haven't really grasped the first assignment. I think i failed it. I was considering buying the book below :

2. C++ GUI Programming with QT 4
By (author): Mark Summerfield
By (author): Jasmin Blanchette
EAN : 9780131872493

Has any one else purchased it? what recommendations can you make or if you can suggest any other books i can buy to really understand QT4.

Thanks
NIRI

I'm not 100% sure but I think I've seen this somewhere on the 2007 Software CD. It was in .chm format. If I can find my CD .. I will confirm.

You're right. It's on the cd! Save some bucks on the textbooks. I think I have around 18 textbooks that I've bought, give or take one or two reference books. Is this a high number? Something has to sink in, right? Guess it's practice, practice..

Hi Guys

Thanks for the information. I was just about to buy it from kalahari.net and thought first let me see if anyone has some more info on my posting. Thank you very much tjvanaarde@web.de , i will definitely take you up on the E-Book offer. Since it's 6.5 MB can you sent it to me via www.yousendit.com? My email address at home is niri@ananzi.co.za. Then i'll download it and print it as soon as possible and do some studying this long weekend. I'm alreading starting with the next assignment smile

Where about is it on the cd? i'll actually do any thing to grasp this subject, and because it's my major i'm a bit concerned. I have all the past years tutorials and info, but with them changing the language this year...all that means nothing. I have also seen posts asking about an open book exam like the previous years, did anyone confirm this?

THanks alot for the info, advice and offers for the software. i'll put my money to better use now...can you believe exclusive books has this book on their site for R800 +....!

Thanks again, and tjvanaarde@web.de please email me and let me know when it's uploaded....chat to you guys soon and enjoy the long weekend!

Take care,
NIRI

Is this just for C++, or in total? Looking at my bookshelf,
I've got 2 C++ books. Book #1 has a publishing date
of 1991, book #2 has publishing date of 1995. Therefore
both books are out of date (C++ was only standardised
in 1998). At the time of purchase (close to the publishing
dates), I found both books to be useful. Now, they are less
so and I keep them purely because offloading them onto
some unsuspecting learner will keep me up at nights smile

So, yes; perhaps your total number of books on C++ might
be a little on the high side. Keep in mind that the language
will be ratified once each decade by thr ANSI/ISO commitee
and your current texts will then be rendered incorrect in
a few areas.

Besides, search for the C++ FAQ on the net or ask on
comp.lang.c++ for recommendations as to the best book
to learn C++ from. They are experts, expert teachers and
some of the posters are even on the ANSI language commitee
for C++. Quite a lot of the books have errors in them.

One more thought; get your company to purchase as many
of the books as possible smile
