      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      'Out of Print'

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    Ever wished you could learn C from a book? Head First C provides a complete learning experience for C and structured imperative programming. With a unique method that goes beyond syntax and how-to manuals, this guide not only teaches you the language, it helps you understand how to be a great programmer. You'll learn key areas such as language basics, pointers and pointer arithmetic, and dynamic memory management. Advanced topics include multi-threading and network programming topics typically covered on a college-level course.

    This book also features labs: in-depth projects intended to stretch your abilities, test your new skills, and build confidence. Head First C mimics the style of college-level C courses, making it ideal as an accessible textbook for students.

    We think your time is too valuable to waste struggling with new concepts. Using the latest research in cognitive science and learning theory to craft a multi-sensory learning experience, Head First C uses a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works, not a text-heavy approach that puts you to sleep.

    Good Book

    This is my fourth book in the Head First series... I know what to refer to when it comes to learning programming. This book is so up to date that it even contains a bit of Arduino in it... I know a few programming languages and I decided to learn the mother of it all C. I wanted something I can trust to teach me it well. I doubt if I will ever find a better learning experience than Head First.

    There are certain things that are not covered in this book... which by no means is any reason why...

    This is one of those books which are creative and interesting , unlike other books which go through topics in hurry and in most confusing manner. This book is different from other books in the way it presents the contents. In simple words its Fun book for learning C language. This book does not have colored pages as its economy version.

    As usual flipkart delivery was on time and in perfect condition.

    Excellent aesthetics

    A well organised and visually tricks delivering book, rather I'd like to say, a good C 'companion'. I am impressed, while it's my first 'Head first' series, to be honest, a 'unique' method to learn C. I don't know if it helps to a beginner having no idea of programming. By the way, the 'Bible' is full of arrows, doing quite ginormous job. An excellent aesthetics is maintained all over the book.

    Feel free to buy it, for good English, to hack C.

    Bit advanced Topic such as OpenCV and GUI, nic...

    A Novel Approach but Incomprehensive!

    The book takes a totally different path in describing the C language. It doesn't follow the mundane flow...
    Intro>>Keywords>>Operators>>ControlStructures>>Arrays>>Strings>>Functions>>Structures>>Pointers>>FIleIO... that most books use.
    It surprises the reader by putting in functions & pointers in the first chapter, & keeps surprising. Illustrations, puzzles & exercises keep you interested. I haven't read it completely but its the first C book that is keeping me hooked like a thrilling myster...
