Applied C : An Introduction and More - 01 edition

Applied C : An Introduction and More (ISBN10: 0070217483; ISBN13: 9780070217485)
ISBN13: 978-0070217485
ISBN10: 0070217483

Summary: Applied C: An Introduction and More provides an introduction to C programming from a "hands on" perspective. With this book both Computer Science and Engineering students learn the C language and how to program through the reading and writing of basic programs early in the book. After introducing students to the basics, the authors use a spiral approach to build on concepts incrementally so that by the end students are able to write longer programs that req
uire multiple functions. The teaching of these programming concepts is accompanied by a focus on sound program design that emphasizes the need for complete and accurate program specification as well as careful testing from the beginning.

Both Engineering and Computer Science students will find this book appealing due to the diverse blend of applications. In addition to many motivating applications throughout the text, topics are introduced with excellent background and motivation followed by accessible explanations illustrated liberally with diagrams, graphs, and short programs.

The text is comprehensive and contains enough material for one semester or two quarters of instruction. Topics in the first half are important for all engineering students to master. The third quarter of the text covers basic data structures and algorithms that are of general interest. The last quarter of the book is of greater interest to computer science students and includes several important topics that are rarely covered by textbooks or presented in a manner that is accessible to students.

Features
  • The emphasis on sound program design will carry over gracefully into an object-oriented environment.
  • Excellent pedagogy: topics are introduced by providing background and explaining the importance of the topic, followed by a careful exposition of the principles involved. The text is illustrated liberally with diagrams, graphs, and short programs that exercise the principles and demonstrate proper syntax.
  • A summary section at the end of each chapter gives perspective on the important concepts introduced in the chapter.
  • A case study or application of a program is provided in each chapter to demonstrate the use of techniques presented in that chapter.
  • Style hints and lists of frequent errors suggest Do's and Don'ts for the developing programmer.
  • A variety of self-test exercises are provided, with solutions for students, allowing students to check for themselves whether or not they understand the concept.
  • There are many applications of concepts, many of which are oriented toward engineering, making this an appropriate text for use by Engineering students as well as Computer Science students.
  • Topics are illustrated by complete programs with output and annotations that show the relevance of the program to the material they are learning.
