Here is a brief description taken from the back cover:

If you want to jump-start your programming career from the privacy of
your own home but you're lacking a compiler and a teacher, this book
is for you. CERTIFIED COURSE IN C is a self-paced, hands-on study of
C, the pre- eminent programming language of the 90s. It comes with a
working version of Borland's Turbo C++ compiler and an opportunity to
earn collegiate certification and credits.

This unique course quickly teaches beginning programmers all the
essentials of C, providing clear-cut, easy-to-follow tutorials, lab
exercises, review sessions, and online multiple-choice quizzes.
You'll move at your own pace and get feedback from your "instructor."
After you pass the course's mail-in final exam, the University of
Phoenix awards you a certificate of completion and offers you a chance
to take a more advanced test for three units of course credit.


This book sells at Barnes and Noble for $40 plus tax.

My price: $27.95 [ I pay postage to any US mainland address ]


Please help yourself [ as well as a starving student ] and buy this
book from me. I purchased it thinking that I might want to tackle C,
but after looking further [ and talking to a couple of programmers ]
I decided to start with something a bit more suited to the beginner.
In other words, I'm going to tackle QBASIC first, then move on to
something more difficult. Sooo..if you have a basic understanding
of programming concepts and want to tackle C, then this is probably a
pretty good deal.

That's all for now.
