Let Us C (English) 13th Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.232

Let Us C is a popular introductory book to the world of C programming. Its simple and approachable style has kept it a popular resource for newbies for many years.

Summary Of The Book

With the expanding horizon of digital technology, there is also an increasing need for software professionals with a good command of a variety of programming languages. The C language is one of the basic skill sets in a programmer’s portfolio.

There has been an explosion in the number of programming languages and different development platforms. However, the C programming language has retained its popularity across the decades.

Let Us C is a great resource from which one can learn C programming. It does not assume any previous knowledge of C or even the basics of programming. It covers everything from basic programming concepts and fundamental C programming constructs.

The book explains basic concepts like data types and control structures, decision control structure and loops, creating functions and using the standard C library. It also covers C preprocessor directives, handling strings, and error handling.

It also discusses C programming under different environments like Windows and Linux. The book uses a lot of programming examples to help the reader gain a deeper understanding of the various C features.

This book also aims to help prepare readers not just for the theoretical exams, but also the practical ones. It builds their C programming skills. It also helps in getting through job interviews. There is a separate section in the book that discusses the most Frequently Asked Questions in job interviews.

This is the 13th edition of the book and it covers all levels of C programming, from basic to intermediate and advanced levels of expertise. With clear concept coverage, simple instructions and many illustrative examples, Let Us C teaches programming and C language features effectively and easily.

This book will ruin your understanding, not recommended at all

This book is followed by most of the engineering students (specially big hit in non-premier colleges) in our country. The reasons may be many: written by an IITian, having lots of code samples (most even dont compile on various compilers) etc etc. But I have found this book really a joke!!

Author (and may be your seniors too) may try to convince you that there is nothing beyond this book in this ocean of C but trust me, this book will ruin your career. You will realize that when you will come to professional development in C. This book does not give a damn to best practices to be followed,...

You will realize that when you will come to professional development in C. This book does not give a damn to best practices to be followed, writing code that will run on all compilers, things to avoid etc.

I personally feel that there are thousand other better books then why to blindly chase it, just because many other idiots are following it. I could have given it a zero star for spoiling the career of many but had to go with one.

avoid at all cost, even if your college prescribes it!

I don't understand why this book is so hugely popular! Its highly harmful if you want to sustain a career in IT.
This is a typical example of how you should never write code.
It teaches bad programming style...doesn't care about standards and is full of toy examples that do no good when you sit for serious coding.
My suggestion (and also suggested by many reputed coders): go for a book called "C programming - a modern approach" by K. N. King (2nd ed.) and when you have grasped the basics and want to delve in deeper, go for the ultimate: "The C programming Language" by K...

The first book is probably not available as a local print(flipkart has an imported edition, i guess) but you can always get an ebook from... you know where! The second is a classic and is off-course available. Its also pretty cheap here at flipkart (~120 bucks).

There's nothing more harmful than bad learning. So, there...

Happy learning and happy coding!

Melody of Love & Wonder

I started my programming career with BASIC and after learning about 10 programming languages I still remember the wonder of those days while I was reading 'Let Us C'. I loved it and got a deep realization of how to write a good book. No matter which technology you use or which coding style you follow, there is always something beyond it and that is the ability of writing a captivating textbook.
I completed this book like a Dan Brown thriller and jumped to another Kanetkar book. I don't think I was wrong. Now as a .NET programmer I CLAIM MY RIGHT to say that 'LET US C' is the best book ever...

I started my programming career with BASIC and after learning about 10 programming languages I still remember the wonder of those days while I was reading 'Let Us C'. I loved it and got a deep realization of how to write a good book. No matter which technology you use or which coding style you follow, there is always something beyond it and that is the ability of writing a captivating textbook.
I completed this book like a Dan Brown thriller and jumped to another Kanetkar book. I don't think I was wrong. Now as a .NET programmer I CLAIM MY RIGHT to say that 'LET US C' is the best book ever written which can really make you to be with C and it is the only book that can make you fall in love with C.

"It all depends how we C it!" - The introduction starts like this and the author is really successful in converting 'C' from a noun to a verb. Learning 'C' is the most thrilling experience in a programmer's life and it is really like an action.

Whenever you are in some coding organisation and some of your colleague comes to with with some difficult coding issue, you tell him, "Let me C if I can solve it." Let Us C is not only a book if is also the name of a passion, a passion for the computer science, a tribute to the father of all modern computing technology and be it on Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, Symbian or iOS, C is the only thing that made it possible.

Today when many schools start to teach programming directly through C++ or Java, one big question really remains unanswered will those students ever be able to do any sensitive programming that can give us the smoothness of iOS or the majesty of Linux.

I want to advise one who is really eager to learn modern programming to follow this path...

Let Us C > Understanding Pointers in C > Data Structures Through C (Optional) > Let Us C++ >> {Then choose any of C#, Java or Visual C/C++ depending on your need}
For Java - Java The Complete Reference
For C# - Microsoft Visual C# 2010 Step By Step > Wrox Professional C# 4.0
For VC/C++ - Visual C++ Programming (again Kanetkar) > Wrox Begining Visual C++ 2010
.
.
.
Then anything your passion wants and now you are capable of finding a 'good programming book' by yourself.

Avoid!

At first glance it appears to be a standard book. However, if read feels like bullshit. This book in particular is out-dated, overly simplistic, and not as comprehensive as other books.

This is the book that advocates learning with Turbo C. A 24 year old compiler.

Quote
"In my opinion, even today there isn't any learning environment that can beat Turbo C/C++ for simplicity."

In preface to it I would love to say that:

This is profoundly, inexcusably, and perhaps criminally, wrong. People who advocate using decades old development tools for writing software in modern environment...

In preface to it I would love to say that:

This is profoundly, inexcusably, and perhaps criminally, wrong. People who advocate using decades old development tools for writing software in modern environments are simply unfit to work in technology. To teach this to those wishing to enter the field is at best ignorant, but mostly just shameful.

The basics of C and programming haven't changed that much over the years. You can learn it from a dusty old volume off the bargain rack if you have the will. However, I find it hard to advocate following advice from someone so completely out of touch.

Turbo C is dead. If you can't accept that, then computers is the wrong place for you.

In Short : Even Microsoft's CMD Prompat is better then this book.

Please and Please Buy if you want to ruin you career or want to ruin someone else.

Read this book 11 years ago

I remember the 4th edition of this book that I have purchased around 11 years ago and started my programming and still I dare to give the review today. At that time I was a lay person to computers and programming. Believe me I was able to start with computers and programming on all my own. I also studied the 5th edition of the book later.

Best C programming book to start with. C programming is the defacto standard for any one to get introduced and learn programming and this book does it in excellent way.

Best C programming book to start with. C programming is the defacto standard for any one to get introduced and learn programming and this book does it in excellent way.

Most striking features of the book (4/5th edition) are:
1. Perfect and straight to the point explanation.
2. Indepth coverage of c and some important concepts of computer hardware
3. The chapters 11 onwards are explained very well for all intricacies of language.
4. Puzzling and interesting exercises at end of every chapter for a newbie
5. DOS interrupts / services and hardware interaction through C.
6. Programming on bits / bytes, extremely useful appendices at the end of book.
7. The most important 8086 addressing scheme explained.

I have also seen that from 7th edition onwards the chapters on hardware interaction, interrupts and some appendices are deleted. New chapters on C programming on Linux and Windows are added.

Anyways I enjoyed all the C programming on my old computer. Suggest every one to read the 4th or 5th edition of this book, but its not available. Still not a problem, go through the present available version and you will gain a lot.

Also one can go through another and most important book on C, titled The C programming language.

Sincere Advise! Please read this before Buying!!

This book is an extremely crude treatment of C language delivered in the most ugly fashion imaginable with codes that run only in Turbo C(1991). Do not buy this. You will finish the boo k and think you have learnt many things but the reality is that you will not be able to write a single line of... (View complete review)

NOT FOR BEGINNERS

I have bought it recently, packing is good and it is delivered in 2 days. Coming to the book the price is reasonable,but the book is not for beginners. If u r learning the programming language for first time,it doesn't suits u.so better go for Balagurswamy it's the book for absolute beginners. (View complete review)
