    "I and my classmates have been relying on this website for like a year now. I just think their notes in PDF form are very effective in terms of teaching the theories and principles encompassing the different programming languages. As a beginner in the field of Information Technology, I have learnt to utilize online resources to augmeng my knowledge on it. What I like the best about this website is that it has a feature that lets you uplooad your personal notes and it somehow becomes a community of students now who share some important and relevant notes with each other.

    "People often forget how important algorithm is. Remember that all data, small or big, begins with algorithm. Everything starts with these mathematical equations! In pgoramming with C, it is an imperative to understand the core of it and this book teaches us how to perform data manipulation and program your own algorithm. "

    "Learning different programming language can be very overwhelming and uncomfortable, I mean sometimes I feel like I need to be a techie or an expert in order to underswtand the gist and the basics of it but this book just wonderfully made things easier for me. I like that it doesnt just stick with the C language but it has taught me general skills that are applicable to all languages. Now, I can say that I am literate enough about the C now that I have understood its parts and how they work together. "

    "I am quite surprised with this website. When I read its name, I thought it would be some shitty website that offers hacks or some tool that is used for hacking. To my surprised, I found out that they actually offer online programming courses and tutorials. C, C++, C#, just to name a few of em. As a user, you can also submit your own tutorial. It is amazing that they offer a holistic approach to programming as some design tools are also readily accessible for learning it. Adobe After effects, and LightRoom is also available for viewing, "

    " One of my professors actually recommended this book because he saw that almost all of us were having a hard time understanding the concept of C. I like that aside from the theories presented, it also feature labs projects to work on for the practical application of the abstract concepts. The way this book teaches is quite unique too as they teach in form of interesting stories that do away with the typical lecture type of teaching. :D "

    "I wouldn’t recommend this book to those who just started learning the language because this is more suited for the mid to expert ones. Advanced tips and tricks will be taught to you in this book. Althought it touches C, it doesn't say much about the basics. Instead, it relates C to the other advanced languages. For instance, it includes intro to C++. "
