Back Cover

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.
