Provides a practical, comprehensive, and hands-on approach to C Programming. The approach is didactic and example-driven.* Explains every concept through practical examples rather than abstract discussions. * Provides instruction in writing large programs using examples and exercises that build upon earlier examples and exercises. Function definitions and their portability are thoroughly discussed. * Provides a section on common errors and traps that students often encounter. * Provides exercises after only one or two examples. This gives students the opportunity to verify their understanding of the concepts presented.
