Description: well i have always like the Deitel & Deitel editions of programming books, so thats why i am writing to tell ...

if you are new to the world and you wish to start learning C, then i recommend this book as it starts at the most simplistic terms of C programming, but yet the time you get to Chapter 20, it hasn't got all that advanced ...
So, with these books it sticks to the basics and trys its best to teach you slowly but surely ... so by the time you get to chapter 14 or 15 you start touching upon making your own header files and inheritance, etc ... but other than that you can really focus with this book and get the basics down pat, such as functions, pointers, arrays, etc ... and then move on to something more advanced ...

This books is very bad for programmers because this book prevents learning to C.

Pros: Very interesting tasks, very good for beginner
Cons: only for beginner

I started programming with this book. Once (at 15 years) I wanted to start learn Visual Basic, went to a shop for bying a book about VB. But there were no VB books, and I saw this book and thought: šIf there is no VB, IŽll buy this oneš. That time I didnŽt know differences between C, C++ or VB. I bought this book and read it 2 times. It was extremely interesting for me, there are very good questions and programming tasks for teaching yourself.
After that time IŽve read a lot of books, became experienced in compilers building, OS kernel and so on., but it was the first..

I recommend to start programming with this book.
