    Dietel C How to program exercises

    Hi,

    I am learning C from the Dietel and Dietel C How to program book, 5th edition, and I have noticed that while solutions are given for te self review exercises, the more involved exercises, which appear to be more useful do not have solutions.

    When I contacted dietel, I was told that they are not in the book because it is an academic textbook. Is there anywhere I can obtain these correct solutions for the 5th edition (I am prepared to pay if necessary)? I found a book for the 4th edition, but I am not sure if that would be any good for the book I have

    Thanks
    Dave

    Because solutions on how you will code something may vary depending on your style.
    besides I think it will take too much space in the book.

    thats true, but standad solutions are very useful to compare your logic against, and also to gain a more efficient coding style - teaching 'best practice'

    I don't know how much the exercises changed from 4 to 5; if you could find a 4th edition of the book itself, you could compare and contrast.

    The publisher is Prentice Hall, isn't it? I suppose you could try to convince one of their book reps that you're faculty....

    I know that I can get the 4th ed, which still only gives you half the solutions. The problem is that its at least 5 weeks delivery - I can't wait that long, I have to learn C, then apply it to a project for my employer waaay before then.

    I think i am going to just go through the chapters, and cross reference with other sources to get the worked examples. From the book list thread, it seems that the C Primer Plus book is a good bet, I think I may try that, as well as my K&R2.

    Its just a bit frustrating that you get all these lovely examples, and you can't check them
