    More C information

    I'm currently learning C using C How To Program by Deitel & Deitel. In my opinion, it isn't the easiest book to understand. I'd like to get another book that might help me understand things a little better.... Any suggestions?

    You could always try C for Dummies or The C programming language, by Kernighan and Ritchie.

    I flipped through Deitel & Deitel, it actually is difficult to follow. I can only imagine what it's like for a newcomer to try and learn from it. Two books I'd suggest for someone completely new to the language and programming are Pointers on C by Kenneth Reek, and Programming in ANSI C by Stephen Kochan. Both are easy to understand, and are more or less correct in all aspects. I say more or less because Programming in ANSI C uses an older style and while it claims to teach ANSI C it was published a year before the ANSI C standard was ratified. I haven't found any glaring problems, so I still recommend it. Pointers on C is probably the best introductory book on C that I've seen.
