I have a few i have got online for free, i was hoping to get everyone's recommendations in terms of ordering a hard cover. If anyone says "A dummies guide to C" my chain will not be yanked :-P
Kelley and Pohl "A Book on C"
The "bible" is Kernighan and Ritchie's The C Programming Language. Very terse. I wouldn't recommend it for beginners.
When I taught myself C, I read Herb Schildt's Teach Yourself C. Highly recommend him as an author.
But I don't see anything wrong with C for Dummies. I have read plenty of Dummies book myself. :-)
Second vote for kelley and pohl.
