About The Product

C++ PROGRAMMING: PROGRAM DESIGN INCLUDING DATA STRUCTURES, Seventh Edition remains the definitive text to span a first and second programming course. D.S. Malik’s time-tested, student-centered methodology uses a strong focus on problem-solving and full-code examples to vividly demonstrate the how and why of applying programming concepts and utilizing C++ to work through a problem. This new edition includes thoroughly updated end-of-chapter exercises, more than 30 new programming exercises, and many new examples created by Dr. Malik to further strengthen student understanding of problem solving and program design. New features of the C++ 11 Standard are discussed, ensuring this text meets the needs of the modern CS1/CS2 course sequence.


  • A full-color interior precisely displays syntax highlighting, emphasizing C++ keywords and comments for beginning programmers.
  • More than 300 visual diagrams illustrate challenging concepts.
  • Numbered full-code examples throughout walk students through the stages of Input, Output, Problem Analysis, and Algorithm Design to illustrate key topics in each chapter. Every programming example includes a full explanation and sample run.
  • A CourseMate digital companion brings the text to life with nearly 20 instructional videos that walk students step-by-step step through key programming examples — plus such interactive study tools as quizzes, flashcards, and games. The CourseMate's digital Lab Manual offers additional hands-on exercises, helping students reinforce critical thinking through practice.

New to this Edition

  • Thoroughly covers several features of the new C++ 11 Standard, including, for example, range-based for loops.
  • Includes a reorganized Chapter 4 that now includes an earlier introduction of if and if…else structures, allowing students to incorporate selection statements before introducing the logical operators.
  • All end-of-chapter exercises — including 200 brand new to this edition — now correlate directly to the learning objectives at the start of each chapter, creating a cohesive tie between content and assessment.
