    Hii Everyone ...
    I am new to this website and to the world of programming.
    I have recently started learning C,I have been taking classes for C and Data structure. Knowledge what i get in my classes is not sufficient to master the language C. I really want to learn it from the base and become amazing at programming, please tell me what should i do what should i know about C, which book would be the best fit for me,how can I make the maximum use of this website and what are the important things which i must follow for programming in C?


    Thankyou So much.........
    Abhishek

    You don't need to put everything in bold.

    Read a book.

    There is no short-cut, lots and lots of actual code writing, solving all sorts of problems is what you need.
    5 years worth of daily programming would see you on your way.
    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.

    Hi Salem...
    Yup i know there is no short cut to success, and I would not follow that path.
    What do you exactly mean by code writing? (sorry,but i am not familiar with terms yet).
    And can you suggest me some books regarding problem solving ?(level 1 books)
    As of now I have finished learning the following basics in C-
    1)Structure of function C
    a)Singl level Function b)Multiple level function.

    2)Data types - Fundamental data types and Derrived Data Types.

    3)Defining Data.

    4)Defining Strings -a)Standard input-output function b)Charcter input-output function c)String based input-out function

    5)Conditional Statements

    6)Switch Case Construct

    7)Loop constuct

    Thankyou
    Abhishek

    Google for "programming contests"
    There's plenty of stuff to try your hand at.
