    I agree !! No use in diluting efforts. It is always better to finish one task and go to next. I did a quick search and found an older article Is Multitasking More Efficient?

    edit: after i think about it some more maybe studying 2 programming languages is not the same as "multitasking" if performed on different days.

    But still I think it dilutes effort and not effective.

    This somehow makes me think of difficulty to learn console programming with C while so many fancy games with full blown graphics and media are suggesting to me that text programming is futile. It seems that years of multimedia games have robbed my creativity in a way

    The C standard has undergone 2 revisions since the publication of that book ie. C89 & C99. Modern compilers have incorporated the newer standards too.

    If you are serious about programming in modern C, update your text.
