New to programming

Learn C++

Read the C++ sections of all chapters in the book, check the chapter’s Delphi section if you don’t understand a particular topic, and finally read Chapters 29 and 30.

Read chapters that cover topics you’re interested in, and also read Chapters 4, 5, 29, and 30 to learn about cool new things added to the Delphi language.

Learn C++

At least skim the Delphi section of each chapter and more thoroughly read the C++ section.

Learn everything

At least skim through the first six chapters to learn Delphi and/or C++ syntax, then read the rest of the chapters thoroughly to learn about sets, file I/O, and OOP. Skim the VCL chapters to learn about the differences between Visual Basic’s intrinsic controls and Delphi’s VCL controls, and pay special attention to Chapters 24 to 27 to learn how to build your own components.

Learn C++

If you already know C/C++, you can start reading the book from Chapter 11 to learn about the VCL framework and the reserved words and constructs specific to Borland’s C++Builder.

Learn Delphi

Skim the Delphi sections of each chapter and read the C++ sections more carefully since the C++ sections usually point out the differences between the two languages.
