a warning to anyone who even remotly considered buying this book! dont it is utter crap! worst c++ book i have ever seen... damn school made me buy it :( the reason it is so bad is because it does not teach you c++. it teaches you a Lawrenceville Press version of c++ :( they have all these retarded librairies that they want you to use... they even have you using their modified msvc++ 6.0 compiler

randomize.h <- common is srand(time(NULL)) that hard?!
string.h <- common is char that hard?! by the way its not the string.h found in most c++ compilers they seem to have removed that :P
array.h <- they dont want you thinking :P i guess char[10][10] is too complex
gui.h <- couldnt they teach us the real way?!

in conclusion dont buy this pos!

Lame. Will their code run on other compilers? If not then I'll have to agree with you.

Can you post some code to look at and try compiling? This sounds interesting :)
