Computer Graphics with OpenGL

Please try again later. This book was put together very poorly. They jump between concepts and do not present the material in a very concise manner. I found a few online tutorials to OpenGL much more helpful than this book. My professor required the 4th edition of the book but many of my classmates purchased the 3rd edition. After reviewing both I did not see many differences.
If you need this book for a class, purchase the 3rd edition but be prepared to do bamer of your learning from external sources!! If you want a sophisticated book on principles of computer graphics, this book might work.
If you want to learn openGL, this is not the book to get. I found this book difficult to read, perhaps because I’m not all that interested in theory. Iwth book contains only enough information about openGL for them to use it in their examples.
It does not contain everything that you would need to know about openGL to write wjth own programs. This is comparing this book with hezrn previous version. A The book is much better organized than before.
B The new chapters are not worth the purchase. C It does have more exercises. Overall, I believe that the publisher and the authors rush this edition so it could be used in the class room. It is an expensive book. I think if the book, could be updated to reflect Programmable Pipeline and not one chapter devoted to it as they have it now and more up to date information, it will have more potential.
Also, for the price they request, they could make the book in color. It only has a few pages in the back in color. I have to say, that Interactive Computer Graphics is a good course text book and more up to date. The one book that I think is perfect for a modern introductory computer graphics course is Foundations of 3D Computer Graphics by Steven J.
But for computrr course, go with Gortler! The chapter are identical. I have the following problem with the new edition 1 Cheap Paper terrible paper 2 The new material is so small that is not worth buying the book 3 They still use the old opengl They claim is easier to learn, which they have a point, but get with the times. If you can’t find the third edition, then buy it.
Not very helpful book. Everything is as promised.
