C By Example makes programming easy to learn for the beginning programmer. It builds your programming skills by using clear, easy-to-understand exercises. Hands-on, real world examples show you how to write programs that flow correctly and produce accurate results. At the end of the book, you will use the concepts you have learned to build a blackjack game. Also included is an appendix that discusses where to find compilers, other C resources, where to go from here, and what kinds of careers you could go into with the knowledge she gained from the book.
