9780195108415: C For Yourself: Learning C Using Experiments

This innovative text provides beginning programmers with a concise, accessible introduction to the world of C. Assuming no prior programming experience, the author presents a carefully chosen subset of C powerful enough for solving non-trivial programming problems, yet simple enough so that a novice can steer clear of the pitfalls. Unsurpassed in motivating students' critical thinking and active learning, C For Yourself features computer experiments which serve to clarify presented concepts and to guide readers into making discoveries on their own. Readers are directed in learning many of the subtleties and intricacies of C through hands-on examples. Each section contains interesting pencil and paper exercises to reinforce new knowledge, and programming problems further enlighten students. Chapters cover all the basics of this increasingly important subject, from pointers and arrays to structures, files, and recursion. The author's clear and highly accessible writing style make this text ideal for beginning students and novice programming enthusiasts. A comprehensive instructor's manual including problem solutions and transparency masters also accompanies the text.
