Mr. Gookin wrote the seminal C for Dummies. It was the first programming book I read from cover to cover and I.
Overall, this two volume set does a very good job of easing the reader into the various rules and constructs of C programming. Also the author has a sense of humor, which he is none to shy about using.
However, I have two complaints: The afore-mentioned humor is used a little too liberally.
It can be distracting when you're trying to get your head around some of the more difficult concepts and the author interjects with random humor. I find this to be a little gratituitous, even though I like the author's style in general.
The cover or snyopsis of this book needs to describe the target audience more clearly. This is not just for people learning C, it's for people learning C on a Microsoft or Borland compiler read: Windows only. For those learning C on a UNIX or Macintosh platform, there are several examples used in the book that will result in errors if you don't know which header files to use in place of the ones the book suggest. Ultimately, it's good practice to find out which header files are needed for your platform and your programs, but I wish the author would've added some Mac and UNIX-specific bulletins throughout the book.
All in all though, this two volume set is a good way to learn C if you're using a Windows-based compiler.
I am not a programmer by trade, but I got through the first volume pages in less than a week. While there isn't as much hand-holding by any means, the examples are equally good and the topics flow together a little more logically. This was my first C book I think it was actually my first computer programming book.

I can't think of a single person this book would be suitable for. What exactly is wrong with this book has been said by other reviewers so I'll confine myself to a synopsis of what I've seen others say here that I also found to be true from my own experience: I'd guess for every three pages you get one morsel of useful content, which in most cases could have been stated in a single line.
This book truly is a great place to start learning C. It doesn't expect you to have any background in programming, which is a huge plus.

I took a programming class my first semester at college and passed with ease one of the professors at the school wrote the book for the class and it was really easy to understand.
The second semester we started learning C and I think the worst thing about the class was the book. The book expects you to understand a bunch of terminology and gives you examples that make little sense unless having prior experience. This text is well written and isn't dry at any point.
The author is constantly using humorous examples to keep your attention. Blocks you should be perfectly fine. I read something about the compilers that are used in the book not being compatible with Linux in another review, but I think that the author was using the two most popular environments at the time.
There are other compilers that will work with Linux I know Code:: Blocks works with Ubuntu Linux, but not everyone uses Ubuntu. Short version: If you have any curiosity or just want a great refresher because you forgot it over summer, haha to learn C language and want to be able to understand it the first time, I highly recommend Vol.
Most other books will give you a big run around and not spell it out in common people terms, which is fine for some people but these books have the rest of us covered: The idea behind the Dummies books - put the reader at ease - is taken to extremes here.
The book has been crafted in such a way that it is the perfect choice for all programmers who wish to learn C programming and are eager to advance their skills. The book will not only help you learn C programming but also introduce you to many new skills which are sought for in the programming world. The book has carved a name for itself in the C programming world due to the code exposure it provides to its readers; not just necessary code for small programs, the book includes real code, something which you might see in projects on Github.
The reader will have to work through all the code one by one to understand C programming, all with little or no handholding. The book includes 52 brilliantly designed exercises, created to help you master rigorous defensive programming techniques, a skill that will help you in any programming language you take up in future.
The book is accompanied by a DVD containing over 5 hours of video lectures and tutorials which complement the book perfectly. Released in , the book is not just about how to learn C programming but also about how to become a great programmer.
Moving over how-to and beyond syntax, this book features labs, which test your abilities with detailed projects to help you put your new skills to use and build your confidence. The book discusses basic and advanced vital areas and concepts, including C language basics, pointers, dynamic memory management, multi-threading, and network programming.
The book imitates the style and contents of a college level course, making it a model textbook for students who wish to learn C programming.
King is an approachable and well-written book which covers the basic and advanced concepts of the C language to help beginners and intermediate programmers alike. The author is an associate professor at Georgia State University and has published a number of books for C, Java and Modula-2 programming The first edition of the book was published in , and the comprehensive and detailed approach of the author made the book accessible to a broad range of readers, including novice programmers to advanced students.
The book was adopted by many educational institutions around the world as their primary C programming text, making the first edition one of the leading C programming textbooks for over ten years.
It also adds many new exercises and projects along with extensive revisions and updates to summarise majority of C concepts in one textbook. The book has been restructured for quicker and effective learning by providing the reader ample examples to put their skills to test.
The book has been co-authored by Stanley B.
The fifth edition continues the legacy of the previous four editions of keeping the material up to date with the latest classifications. The previous editions were filled with examples to help maintain a theory with practice approach, and the new edition does the same. Many old examples have been updated while at the same time a number of new examples have been added to the book as well.
The book and its previous editions has been selected by thousands around the globe and trusted as a valuable resource for both beginner and experienced programmers. Features including auto type declarations, move semantics, concurrency support and much more. The book discusses the use of those features and how you can make your software efficient, manageable and portable. Apart from discussing the language, the book also sheds light on the techniques which can be followed to write clear and correct code, and how the old programming practices require some revision for software development in current times.
But it is important to note that the book is not aimed at complete beginners but at someone who has some programming knowledge. Some of the topics covered in the book are string handling, arrays, iterators, class design, pointers, operator overloading, and inheritance. This massive book over pages will introduce you to the best practices for structuring your code and help you emerge as an expert programmer.PCs For Dummies.

However, I have two complaints: Each chapter discusses a concept s in brief and then straightaway moves to code, following a practical over theory approach. Models, Learning, and Inference - Simon J. Vikram Chandra. It has a comprehensive index, useful conversion tables, and it comes with TClite, a compiler, on a disk.
