Straightforward overview of C 2 Mar 2002
By Dr. Lee D. Carlson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
With their low cost and their wide availability in college bookstores, the Schaum's Outline Series has helped many students in the past decades. In technical areas, the books in the Series are noted for being example wizards, and therefore are also of assistance to instructors. In this book on C programming, the author has continued this tradition, and has produced a book that turns out to be one of the best ways to learn this language. C can be difficult and abtruse at times, particularly in the use of pointer arithmetic, in string manipulation, and in memory management, but the author, again through many examples, clears up nicely any nagging issues in writing programs in C. C is still heavily used in applications, particularly when performance is an issue, and only in recent years has it been seriously replaced by its descendant, C++. The material in the book is pretty standard, and no really imaginative uses of C are outlined, such as how to use C to do self-reference function calling or how to emulate functional programming using C. However, for one needing an introduction to C, or for one who is teaching C in the classroom, this book would be a good supplement if cognizance is taken of current programming standards in C.

Not updated to current ANSI standard! 5 Dec 1999
By Woody - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The preface by the author suggests that the second (current) edtion reflects the current ANSI standard.
('The sample programs conforms to the ANSI C standard').
I found examples where it does not:
On page 294, the author states that 'an array within a function MUST be defined as a STATIC array so that it can be initialized'.
The are numerous examples which correspond the classic C but not the ANSI C:
Exmaples 10.14, 10.12..
A statement on page 215: 'automatic arrays can not be initialized" is not also correct'.
The back cover of the book suggests: 'if your goal is better comprehension or top grades. this powerful study tool [...] is the closest thing to a guarantee you will find anywhere'.
In fact, if your answers during an exam are based on the examples cited, you are expected to get a lower grade.

A Teaching Reference, And A Great Book 28 Oct 2005
By oldwoodworker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
C is not a large language, there's not a lot to remember a far as conditionals, types, etc... but there is much to learn. This book gives only the facts and not dogma or methodologies, and the examples are to the point as they should be. This book really should be hardbound and sitting next to your copy of The C Programming language by DR and BK. This manila tome is truly one of the hidden gems you can get for 15 bucks. Use it until the pages fall apart, by then you will have assimulated it's worthwhile knowledge.

You really have to enjoy this book for it's straightforwardness. If you like the "Dummies" series, this book will progress a bit too fast for you, for it is rather complete in it's description of the language features. But if you read and digest technical matters in one or two (or three) gulps, you'll benefit from this book.

Dated, but still very useful 28 Nov 2007
By Charles Ashbacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been teaching introduction to programming with C for almost two decades and over that time many students have asked me for a source for additional programming problems. My answer has always been the latest edition of Schaum's outline in Programming in C. The problems are sound and challenging and working through the solutions is great practice in the art of paper debugging. While interactive buggers are a godsend, performing critical visual reviews of code is a skill that is still essential for the good programmer.
While this outline is somewhat dated, having been published in 1990, the base language of C is still the same. I still recommend it to students who need more practice in visual debugging skills.

Read it in 1999 and again in 2013. 13 May 2013
By rsingh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had read this book in 1999 to brush up my C programming skills. Today in 2013 when I had to look back at the concepts I ordered the same book and followed through. If you are serious about programming please solve each and every exercise/task at the end of each chapter. Don't buy this book if you want to learn programming in 24 hours! Sorry :)
