Item description for Let Us C 8/E (with CD-ROM) (Computer Science)(Engineering) (Computer Science) by Yashavant P. Kanetkar...
Considered to be one of the best-selling programming books ever written, the eighth edition has now been edited, revised, and updated. A CD-ROM with demos, code, compiler, executables, and MATLAB examples has been added to the book. Simplicity and an easy narration style are the hallmarks of the book, which have made its previous seven editions immensely successful. Today s C programmer (still the language of choice in science, engineering, game programming and for handheld devices) has to master the complexities of the language and contend with its usage in environments like Windows, Linux, and for the Internet. This book covers these three aspects of C programming and doesn t assume any programming background. It begins with the basics and steadily builds the pace, so the reader finds it easy to handle more complicated topics later. This popular author has crafted hundreds of excellent programming examples and exercises for every aspect of C programming. ++++Features +Self-study format provides hundreds of step by step examples and exercises + Assumes no programming knowledge; starts with the basics and progresses to more difficult topics +Includes a CD-ROM with demos, code, compiler, executables, and MATLAB examples +Covers the latest programming techniques for Windows, Linux, and the Internet ++++++Selected Topics Traditional C Programming; Pointers; Complete Build Process; Low-level File I/O; Structures, Unions, Bit-fields; Bitwise Operators.

A reference any computer library must have. Jun 20, 2008
The 8th updated edition of a classic considered a foundation work in C programming is now available, and any college-level or technical library strong in C programming will find the new edition has been extensively edited, revised, and updated, complete with a CD-ROM added with more examples. From hundreds of step-by-step examples and exercises for self-study to a basic coverage focusing on both the latest techniques and introductory material for beginners, LET US C is a reference any computer library must have.

Excellent first book Apr 18, 2007
This was the first book that got me started off on C programming, and I would strongly recommend it, provided you don't mind overlooking the author's limited lingual skills and choice of words. (That's the only reason I have rated this with 4 stars instead of a full five.) The best parts of the book are the short concise examples, followed by some really interesting exercises: I would recommend that you do each and every problem listed in the exercises, since they help the beginner programmer to immediately apply the concepts learned, and thus permanently internalize them. The exercises themselves are very interesting and challenging and let you test your mettle.
All in all, a very good _beginner_ level book to begin your career in C programming.
