Blackburn, K. Pereira, Stuart M. Sterling, Ehud Y. Good book, but you need to have a strong C background in order to understand anything from the book. Probably what I like the most of this book are the excellent set of problems. They are taken from different areas of engineering, which is quite helpful to give the students a good idea on how to apply programming concepts to solve engineering problems. The top down process is also present in all of the book. Part of the reason for the book's bulk is the authors' extensive use of complete example programs.
Typically other programming texts furnish code snippets, which is no big deal if you are an experienced programmer. But this text is directed at someone with absolutely no previous experience with programming [in any language]. Hence, by providing entire programs, the reader has a simpler time. There is also a good use of flowcharts.
The reader needs to get familiar with these, as a diagrammatic way of understanding programs and their underlying algorithms. If you want to make a living in this field, flowcharting is a basic skill to be cultivated. Pseudocode is also given. Another aspect of programming that must be learnt.
Part of your core competence will be to take pseudocode and manually translate this into functioning C code [or code of another language]. The book covers all major elements of C. The most interesting discussion might be about strings. This is a major weakness of C, since a string is not a basic data type. Hence the book warns about overruns - which are mismatches between the space you allocate for a string and the actual writing of a string into that space.
What the book doesn't stress is that in practice, this is one of the major causes, if not the main cause, of bugs in C programs. Later languages like Java and C realised this error in C and promoted strings to a fundamental data type, for this very reason. I gave it a two because it does contain information. The author s start out by describing basic computer functions in a somewhat unhelpful way.
They start dropping terms like ALU and then never use them again. It's a very drudging read because simple concepts are never explained in simple terms. The review questions are broken down into sections instead of chapters. My instructor put some of the review questions in the midterm so I had to go through about 30 question sets to review. The answers are in the book, but still.. This seems to be written for engineers by engineers so maybe to an engineer it's well written This book is over-priced.
It is very hard to follow, and does not make key points clear. Even as a seasoned programmer, I was looking for a C book for my brother to learn from. This was one of the books that I picked up, and I was rather disappointed by it. Needed for school, good book, shipped quickly. One person found this helpful.
