This book covers a few topics that most of other books have not covered in detail explanations are very clear and easy to grasp but examples seem off topic I mean examples should only explain the discussed topic and no besides topics are not covered seuentially which can be an advantage for readers who already know C and a disadvantage for who are not experienced on coding in CI recommend reading a structured and easier to read book like Sams teaching yourself c in one hour a day before reading this oneand I also do recommend reading this book afterwards as it covers many topics that previous book was not covered in detailhappy coding in C

I m going to try to keep my impressions of C separate from my impressions of this book C has challenged me in a serious way and while I admire its power and depth often it s a bit much Conceiving of a coherent way to introduce the many main topics and rabbit holes of the language poses a serious challenge Prata does his best to acknowledge everything the language offers as he guides the reader through C Features that could be brushed over on first pass often lead to a digression before an eventual return This frustrates me as a reader but it also makes me recognize that Prata does not wish to neglect aspects of the language by providing a dumbed down explanation that will fail to pass muster when the reader learns It s not the best way to do a book for beginners though There are many other books recommended for beginners hereThat being said I benefited greatly from this book Its depth made looking up simple uestion cumbersome at times I picked up this for that purpose That depth did have benefits though I m already familiar with many of the topics that will be covered in my next C class having read this If you re self studying or looking for an intro to the language there have got to be some better options out there

C Primer Plus Sixth Edition New C11 Coverage C Primer Plus is a carefully crafted complete tutorial on one of the most significant and widely used programming languages today An accessible and easy to use self study guide this book is appropriate for both serious students of programming as well as developers already proficient in other languages The sixth edition of C Primer Plus has been updated and expanded to cover the latest developments in C including a detailed look at the new C11 standard Author and educator Stephen Prata has created an introduction to C that is instructive clear and insightful Fundamental programming concepts are explained along with details of the C language Many short practical examples illustrate just one or two concepts at a time encouraging readers to master new topics by immediately putting them to use Review uestions and programmi. A friend of mine asked me about a good book on C programming for an absolute beginner ie for a person without any programming experience At first I told him to choose a different programming language to start from but he was reluctant to this idea so I decided to uickly skim over few books on C programming for beginners to find one which would do good than harm So far I read only one book on C that counts as a book for beginners namely C How to Program by Harvey M Deitel and Paul J Deitel and overall I think Deitel s book is a good one Or at least it was a good one since I read at almost 10 years ago so new editions might be worse Anyway I decided to give few other books a try and the first one on the list was C Primer Plus by Stephen Prata And after reading first 200 pages and skimming over the remainder of it I m uite disappointed The main issue of this book is that it teaches you C through C ie the author first shows how something can be done in C way and only then explain the analogous C way of doing things For instance the reader is first introduced to C style strings and arrays with all their idiosyncrasies in details and only then and rather uickly to C standard classes stdstring and stdvector that solve most of these idiosyncrasies This archaic way of teaching C is simply inappropriate in 21st century when C finally won its freedom from its C heritage Another issue is the inability of the author to concentrate on really important things without throwing an information of minor importance Often it looks like the only reason for discussing some topic is that the author just knows about it The author seems to care so little about is the topic actually necessary and suitable for a particular chapter that sometimes I m even a bit suspicious does he have any plan

    I used this book as a reference when studying up for a technical interview and it's by far the most common sense guide to C that I own and I have a LOT of CC books The author explains things really well and there are clear examples throughout the book

    If someone is just beginning to learn c and wants to follow know how approach then this IS the book for you This book will tell you everything and hardly miss out any point and it's enormous size is its proof Despite covering everything this book throws topics very gently and in well organized fashion I've tried other books on c too like Accelerated C C Primer by Lippman Let's us C etc and I found the content of Prata
