Yeah Let Us C is a damn good book. The explanations are good and there are many sample programs. I've got the book myself. And the author of the book has a web presence where he posts more sample programs and exercises.
Well, wen i started abt learning the basics of programming, i referred to my Engg SEM-I (Mumbai univ.) book known as Computer Programming-I (for C) and Computer Programming-II (for C++) from Techmax publications,.
moved on to Let Us C and then E.Balagurusamy(C and C++ and JAVA), Barry BUrd (Beginning Programming in JAva for DUmmies) and now(at present) Kathy Sierra (for JAVA)
