Hi guys, I started learning C a few days ago, watching as many youtube tutorials as possible but there aren't many tuts on youtube :/

Can anyone recomend me a good book or list of tutorials? I started to read "The C Programming Language" by dennis ritchie but It's a little advanced and confusing for me :/ I need somewhere to start off.

Heres a program I wrote, I'm including this to show how nooby I am in C, I really am a complete begginer :/

#import <stdio.h>
#import <conio.h>

int main(void)
{
    /* This is my Random Number Generator, By bckc */
	
	
    int bc;
    int kc;
    int owns;
    srand(time(NULL));
    
    bc = 0;
    kc = 0;
    
    
    printf("How many numbers do you want to generate? \n");
    scanf("%d", &kc);
    
    printf("\nWhat is the highest number you'd like to be displayed?\n");
    scanf("%d", &owns);
    
    printf("\n\nHit any key to generate %d", kc);
    printf(" random numbers between 1 and %d", owns);
    printf(". \n\n");
    
    
    getch();
    
    while(bc<kc){
                 printf("%d\n", 1+rand()%owns);
                 bc++;
                 }  
    

    printf("\n\nClick any key to close. Cheers, Bckc.");

    getch();
    
}

Since you are asking about books only , its not necessary to include these type of sentences and programs to show that you are a beginner , instead you can just ask about the books.

Dennis Ritche is the best book for C programming language.
Some other books for beginners:-
Let Us C- by Yashwant Kanitar
Mastering in C -by VenugopalRao
These are really good books for beginners but you should also go through dennis Ritchie.
remember don't just stick on studying books follow them and keep practicing.
Practice will clear your doubts and make a way to think more in other directions.

DON'T follow Yashwant Kanetkar (as suggested by cse.avinash)...its a popular book in India (and I'm from India, so its a valid suggestion) but its a complete mess...and wrong...and outdated...and non-standard...and i can go on and on...

A better book to follow(for beginners) would be:
A modern approach to C programming by K. N. King

You can also check out the sticky as advised by gerard4143

Happy Learning...:)

I never heard of this book so I check Amazon's reviews - 29/36 reviews 5/5 stars.

http://www.amazon.ca/Programming-Approach-K-N-King/dp/0393969452

if you are an indian .i would suggest you"c in depth "by Srivastav and Srivastav.dont go for "let's c"..it has very loopholes..this book will help you in learning c step by step.
keep learning.

SORRY it's my mistake...i have not gone through the book
( Lets Us C) and I suggested it.\
I looked it up, many things are written worng in that book.

K.N.King is good book for beginner's.
