About this book

With Beginning C: From Novice to Professional, Fourth Edition, you'll come to understand the fundamentals of the C language and learn how to program. All you need is this book and any one of the widely available free or commercial C or C++ compilers, and you'll soon be writing real C programs. You'll learn C from the first principles, using step-by-step working examples that you'll 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. You'll 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:

  • It is the only beginning-level book to cover the latest ANSI standard in C
  • Is approachable and aimed squarely at people new to C
  • Emphasizes writing code after the first chapter
  • Includes substantial examples relevant to intermediate users

Reviews

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"This tutorial is intended for a wide range of readers, from nonprogrammers to those with programming experience who don’t know the C language. The book’s goal is to be a comprehensive text that will lead the prospective programmer from his or her starting point all the way to a career in programming. … It also gives a good overview of the process of program creation, including a section on dealing with errors." (William Fahle, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (4), April, 2008)
