I have three files, one is an interface, main file and the header file. I am using visual studio 2012 express. Below is the code:

// Exercise 3.11 Solution: ex03_11.cpp
// Test program for modified GradeBook class.
#include

include "GradeBook.h"

using namespace std;

// function main begins program execution
int main()
{
// create a GradeBook object; pass a course name and instructor name
GradeBook gradeBook(
"CS101 Introduction to C++ Programming", "Professor Smith" );

// display initial value of instructorName of GradeBook object
cout << "gradeBook instructor name is: "
<< gradeBook.getInstructorName() << "\n\n";

// modify the instructorName using set function
gradeBook.setInstructorName( "Assistant Professor Bates" );

// display new value of instructorName
cout << "new gradeBook instructor name is: "
<< gradeBook.getInstructorName() << "\n\n";

// display welcome message and instructor's name
gradeBook.displayMessage();
} // end main

// Exercise 3.11 Solution: GradeBook.cpp
// Member-function definitions for class GradeBook.
#include

include "GradeBook.h"

using namespace std;

// constructor initializes courseName and instructorName
// with strings supplied as arguments
GradeBook::GradeBook( string course, string instructor )
{
setCourseName( course ); // initializes courseName
setInstructorName( instructor ); // initialiZes instructorName
} // end GradeBook constructor

// function to set the course name
void GradeBook::setCourseName( string name )
{
courseName = name; // store the course name
} // end function setCourseName

// function to retrieve the course name
string GradeBook::getCourseName()
{
return courseName;
} // end function getCourseName

// function to set the instructor name
void GradeBook::setInstructorName( string name )
{
instructorName = name; // store the instructor name
} // end function setInstructorName

// function to retrieve the instructor name
string GradeBook::getInstructorName()
{
return instructorName;
} // end function getInstructorName

// display a welcome message and the instructor's name
void GradeBook::displayMessage()
{
// display a welcome message containing the course name
cout << "Welcome to the grade book for\n" << getCourseName() << "!"
<< endl;

// display the instructor's name
cout << "This course is presented by: " << getInstructorName() << endl;
} // end function displayMessage
