This book is terrible. Grammatical errors and nonsensical sentences abound. The author has only a tenuous beginner's grasp of C; his 'explanation' of some basic concepts is flawed. As others have said, the 5-star reviews must be fraudulent. No sensible reader could admire this book. It's a shame, as a knowledge of C is very relevant even in today's OOP world.
A great short book for learning/recalling the C language!Why only 4 starts?1. The biggest difficulty for me was getting a C compiler. The book just has a reference to MinGW.org. I spend almost a day on that website, but was not able to install and run the C compiler. Eventually, I had to use Microsot Visual Studio 2015, which is not necessarily the best solution. I wish the author would provide a proper step-by-step direction to get a free C compiler.2. There were some discrepancies between the lines of codes as well as the libraries provided in the book and what Visual Studio has (examples: scanf vs. s_scanf, or non existence of the library graphics.h, ...), which kind of takes me back to the first problem, i.e. lack of a clear instruction for obtaining a C compiler consistent with what the author has used in his book.3. Trivial, but the book has couple of typos/errors.
I selected this book because it was small and to the point. I studied C years ago and I wanted a refresher book that did not require a forklift for me to lug around. It is a good read and will get me back up to speed.
I have received this product in exchange for a free unbiased, personal opinion review.This book is a very well written book for people who want to start to learn how to program. I have wanted to learn how to program for a while now and so I read this book. It has great content inside and is very very helpful. I could probably teach other people programming now that I read this book and have some knowledge.
excellent book, especially for those who are just starting out in the world of programming, the benefits long-term leaves are really quite amazing, the information is very detailed and explicit helping to learn fast, my brother gave it to me in my birthday, and really is a great tool, especially for those who are not experts in the world of programming.
This book makes a brief introduction to C language, if you're looking a book you a imtroduccion C this is the book, wasting your time if you are already an advanced level, for those looking to learn the basics and apply for personal projects recommend, I received this article in exchange for an honest review.
I was curious about programming and what it was all about. I bought this book and I was impressed with how informative it was yet how easy it was for me to understand. They highlighted the basics and the key terms I needed to know so I was familiar with them as I went on. I have learned this is the best place to start since C programming is the most commonly used. After I read the book I re read it gave it a try and was able to reference back the book when I got stuck.
it's a very nice guide, it was really helpfull to understand C, i needed to learn the basics about C in a short time and this guide did the job. With a few more moths of practice i'll be able to dominate this language, nice product.
