    Book recommendation C

    Can you recommend a book about C ?
    I currently use " Jamsa's C/C++ Programmer's Bible".Is too old?

    is better if I try to learn in parallel c and c++?

    If you like it, do it, but only do C for about 1-2 months, then stick with C++.

    You don't want to spend a lot of time with a procedure oriented style of programming, when you'll be working with the OOPS style of programming primarily, in C++.

    Have fun!

    I like K&R's The C Programming Language. There are free books out there as well if you don't want to spend money.

    there are many similar things between c and c++. I find that if you learn c++, you can still write and understand c code; but not the other way around. In the beginning of learning them, there are pretty much minimal differences between C and C++ ( well, except for I/O).One book I enjoyed is "expert C programming".

    "Expert C Programming, Deep C Secrets" is a great book after you finish K&R's book. It's kind of a continuation.

    We already have ample "book" threads.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
