Hey, I was wondering what is a good C book for learning. I already got, K&R (The C programming langiage: second edition), C for dummies Vol 1 & 2, and SAMS Teach yourself C++ in 5 days. And yes, I want to learn C, not C++. So, wich book would be the best eh? Should I buy another one eh? eh? ------- ~Ned Ryan

It seems like you''ve got a pretty good start. WHy don''t you just read the ones you have. I learned C programming for the K&R book. Even though it gets a little dull it still has some good info.

I know what you mean about the K&R book not being good for beginners. The material in the text itself is not too bad, but the exercises are awfully hard. To get a good idea of how hard the exercises are, check out (so everyone on this site doesn't tell me that the exercises are easy and that I have not worked hard enough at them):

Notice that only 79 of them have been solved.

By the way, does anyone know about a good book that teaches you C from the ground up.

By the way, does anyone know about a good book that teaches you C from the ground up as if you never programmed before in your whole life.
