    reccomandations for learning functions?

    Does anyone have a book, video tutorial etc that they recommend for learning basic functions? My teacher uploads video lectures of all the basics of c programming but some of them, including the video that covers functions, they kinda suck.

    Basically All (That I have ever seen!) online tutorials and especially, videos DO SUCK! ;^)

    I recommend two books that I used when I was teaching C:

    C Primer Plus, 6th Edition
    Stephen Prata

    C Programming, A Modern Approach
    Author: K. N. King

    Choose one and study it cover-to-cover, and do all the exercises at the end of each chapter.

    On the cover of a modern approach, it says it only cover c89 and 99, is that a problem?

    My teacher recommends this book:

    P. J. Deitel H. M. Deitel,
    C: How to program

    Do you have any experience with it?

    The 8th edition of the Deitel book would also be OK to use. I have not used it, but have looked at a previous edition.

    Although C11 is the latest C Standard, C99 is fine for learning C.
