    Where to buy (just some suggestion):
    1. Amazon
    2. Pearson (for the C++ Primer)
    3. Online Buy/Sell facebook group.
    4. Email to our office to check whether we currently have a used book available for sale.
  2.  

  3. Download and install the IDE - Options (only one of the following):
    1. Windows: Microsoft Visual Studio Community Version - C/C++ . This is the most preferred tool because of its excellent debugger.
    2. Windows or MacOS: MS Visual Studio Code. A much lighter weight option, but setup is not as user friendly, and the debugging tool is not as user-friendly.
    3. Online only:Online C/C++ IDE. However, it's debugger is very limited.
