    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.

    About the Authors
    David Griffiths began programming at age 12, after being inspired by a documentary on the work of Seymour Paper. At age 15 he wrote an implementation of Papert's computer language LOGO. After studying Pure Mathematics at University, he began writing code for computers and magazine articles for humans and he is currently an agile coach with Exoftware in the UK, helping people to create simpler, more valuable software. He spends his free time traveling and time with his lovely wife, Dawn.

    Dawn Griffiths started life as a mathematician at a top UK university where she was awarded a First-Class Honours degree in Mathematics. She went on to pursue a career in software development, and has over 15 years experience working in the IT industry. Dawn has written several books, including Head First C, Head First Statistics and Head First 2D Geometry.

    Creative and interesting.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Excellent Book

    i've checked many books for C but, this book is just AWESOME!
    Just love the content, way it is represented, Personal Notes Making Style, eye catching detailed description. if u want to learn C by clearing doubts yourself. Then, go for it without much thinking.
    I must say, its a best book so far!
    and now, i am a fan of Head First Series.


    p.s: thanks flipkart for your quick delivery.
