Many students of C will rightly admit that it's not an easy language to learn, but the professional insight, clear explanations, examples, and pictures in the Cengage Learning for the Absolute Beginner series make learning C easy and fun. Programming is not a skill you can acquire by reading; you have to write programs to learn. That's why each chapter in this book contains programming challenges, a chapter review, and a complete program that uses chapter-based concepts to construct an easily built application. With the guidance in this book, you'll learn how to create algorithms and pseudocode to think through and design programs; translate your designs and plans into working C programs; write, compile, test, and debug your code; use data types, arrays, pointers, strings, file operations and more to create robust programs.
