    Programming newbie

    Hi guys, I have been practicing programming for a month already with python, however I want to learn the C language because my friends say its a more powerful language but the learning path is not easy, and they suggested me the K&R book. My question is, is the K&R book advisable for newbies like me in learning the C language? Suggestions are greatly appreciated.THANKS

    First a general rule : when in any forum post in the appropriate thread.This is a C++ thread.The C thread is bellow it.

    No i wouldn't advice K&R for a beginner.If you search the forum you will find recommendations on books .

    Keep in mind that programming is not taught be reading books, it is taught be writing code,compiling debugging the errors that you are sure to have,then compile again, debug again and so on...

    You can find a good video programming series on C, by Mark Virtue. If one was to search on tpb 'VTC c programming' and get the series done by Mark Virtue, the would be pleasantly surprised. There's also a good book called 'Charles Petzold - Programming Windows' which is very good. But you will need to know the basics first...
