Youll learn C from the first principles, using step-by-step working examples that youll create and execute yourself.
This book will increase your programming expertise by guiding you through the development of fully working C applications that use what you've learned in a practical context. Youll also be able to strike out on your own by trying the exercises included at the end of each chapter. Pick up a copy of this book by renowned author, Ivor Horton, because:

If you think that you've found an error in this book, please let us know about it. You will find any confirmed erratum below, so you can check if your concern has already been addressed.On page 19:In figure 1-4, the book refers to "void main". This is not a well defined entry point for a standard C program, as indicated by n1256.pdf section "22.214.171.124.1 Program startup". In other sections of the book "int main(void)" is used. I suggest returning int from the main function instead.
On page 59:
Step #5 on that page appears wrong and doesn't fit the example.
On page 202:
Exercise 5.3 has an error in the source code. If you enter these five numbers separated by spaces "1.99 2.99 3.99 4.99 5.99" it will output $1.99 $2.99 $3.99 $4.98 $5.98". The last two numbers are wrong; they are missing one cent.
On page 314:
const int pvalue = &value1; /* pointer to constant */
int const cpvalue = &value1; /* Constant pointer */
