Recommended Books on C/C++ Programming Basic Books: B. Kernighan & Ritchie. The C Programming Language (2nd edition), Prentice Hall, 1988. This is the bible of the C language by the people who invented the language. It is a beautiful, condensed description of the language, with excellent examples, but not always easy to read. Any serious C/C++ programmer should have this book in his personal library. There are some glitches where the text is not fully up to the C89 Standard, so be sure to refer to Harbison & Steele (see below). B. Stroustrup. The C++ Progamming Language , Addison Wesley (3rd edition) 1997. This is the bible on C++ by the man who designed the language. It is somewhere between a teaching text and a reference, and it is often not easy reading until you have learned the basics of the C++ language. However, this book should be in the library of any serious C++ programmer, and it should be read often! Be sure to get the third edition - earlier editions are obsolete. S.B. Lippman & J. Lajoie. C++ Primer (3rd edition), Addison-Wesley 1998 Pretty meaty for a "primer." My favorite textbook-style introduction to C++. Very large, covers most of the language with good explanations and examples. An excellent place to look things up if Stroustrup seems unclear. Reference Books: S. P. Harbison & G.L. Steele, C: A Reference Manual (5th edition), Prentice Hall, 2002.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
