Text and Readings

The text for this course is:
Bjarne Stroustrup, Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++, Addison-Wesley, 2009 (ISBN-13: 978-0-321-54372-1).
We hope to cover Chapters 12–22 of the text; if time permits, we'll cover additional chapters.

The author has a website for this text. It has a lot of useful material. For starters, you should consult his style guide.

Note: It is sometimes possible to get cheaper "international editions" of textbooks. However, these books may not be a 100% match of the original text. I have sometimes seen cases where the exercises of the international edition do not match those in the standard edition. For this reason, I highly suggest that you obtain the standard edition of the text. If you opt for the international edition, it is your responsibility to ensure (e.g.) that the exercises in your edition match those in the standard edition; I am not going to grade two different sets of exercises.


You will receive the same grade for both components of the course (CISC 2000 and CISC 2010). This grade will be determined as follows:

[1] In case you were wondering, "strudel" is the Israeli term for the "@" sign found in email addresses. If you look at the end of a strudel, it somewhat resembles an "@". (Back.)
