Sams Teach Yourself C in One Hour a Day, Seventh Edition is the newest version of our 500,000+ copy best-seller Sams Teach Yourself C in 21 Days. Fully revised for the new C11 standard and libraries, it now emphasizes platform-independent C programming using free, open-source C compilers rather than proprietary IDEs.

Replete with carefully explained code, syntax examples, and well-crafted exercises, this is the broadest and deepest introductory C tutorial available. It's ideal for anyone who's serious about truly mastering C - including thousands of developers who want to leverage its speed and performance in modern mobile and gaming apps.
Friendly and accessible, it delivers step-by-step, hands-on experience that starts with simple tasks and gradually builds to professional-quality techniques. Each lesson is designed to be completed in hour or less, introducing and clearly explaining essential concepts, providing practical examples, and encouraging you to build simple programs on your own. Coverage includes:
- Understanding C program components and structure
