Learning C

Someone asked if I could recommend a good book for learning how to program in the C language. The definitive C book is "The C Programming Language" by the legendary K & R.

What is your favorite C book?

Once you have the basics under control I would recommend that you take a look at "Expert C Programming". I read this book in 1995 and it is full of useful C information.

Have fun learning C, the syntax is a little more complicated than Java or Visual Basic, however, knowing C will stand you in good stead when it comes time to learn C++ or indeed any of the various languages who owe their syntax structures to C including Java and C#, if you have any comments please let me know and if you have any other questions which you'd like me to answer for free please send them to Ben Dash at
