From the Back Cover
Using a subset of ANSI C, Problem Solving and Program Design in C, Second Edition teaches a disciplined approach to solving problems and to applying widely accepted software engineering methods to design program solutions. Intended for a first course in programming, this text assumes no prior knowledge of computers or programming. Written to be accessible to students, concepts are presented in an order that makes sense to the beginning programmer --not in units dictated by the structure of the language. A broad selection of case studies and exercises allow an instructor to design an introductory programming course in C for computer science majors or for students from a wide range of other disciplines. While retaining its proven problem solving approach, the new edition has been refined to become an even stronger teaching tool.
Introduces the difficult concept of pointers, uniquely and effectively, over four separate chapters
Covers user-defined functions with input parameters in Chapter 3, allowing students to do more meaningful programs early
Provides complete coverage of loop constructs (Chapter 5) and complete coverage of stacks (Chapter 8 Arrays, Chapter 10 Recursion, Chapter 14 Dynamic Memory Allocation)
Includes a complete appendix of ANSI C Standard Library Functions for reference
Reinforces key concepts using strong pedagogical features including program style boxes, syntax displays, end-of-section exercises, case studies, common error sections, programming projects, and others --This text refers to the Loose Leaf edition.
