Are you aware that C programming is one of the most popular and commonly used programming languages today and that your children may even be learning it in their schools? And did you know that many expert developers began their careers by learning C programming? If you're looking for a shortcut to go from a basic to an expert programmer, this is the book for you! And no worries, all technical jargon is removed, making it easier for you to understand.

Would you consider the audio edition of C Programming Professional Made Easy: Expert C Programming Language Success in a Day for Any Computer User! to be better than the print version?

Yes

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. And multiple times.

Any additional comments?

Look, this book isn't going to make you an expert in one listen but you really don't want that. It gets you through the basics. I'd say; get the audio book and listen a couple of times through. Then play it in the background while you're working and doing other things. It's a great method to get used to terminology and get used to the idea of programming, and it's fundamental concepts.

After you get through this, just go read the GNU C manual. The two together work as a great pair to get you started off.

Are you fed up with reading long, boring, lengthy paragraphs after paragraphs of text and want to get up and running in Python as soon as possible? Well, you're not alone. I for one hate having to read through masses of text for very little benefit. Python Programming: How to Code Python Fast in Just 24 Hours with Seven Simple Steps strips away the non-essentials and instead provides you with the fundamentals from which you can blossom as a Python programmer in just seven simple steps.

Would you listen to Python Programming again? Why?

Yes, its easy to follow and provides some decent fundamentals for python.

Were the concepts of this book easy to follow, or were they too technical?

The only issue I notice is when discussing code, or URLs, he sometimes goes into depth like "This bracket, than this symbol, etc".

Any additional comments?

This book is a bit more technical than the other python book Audible, so I would suggest listening to it second. (Listen to Python Programming Techniques, by Lance Gifford first.)

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. this book provides an easy to digest foundation for best security practices, and lots of terminology the readers may be unfamiliar with. If you are studying for the test, do not rely only on this book, as it is out of date, and only meant to be supplimental.

Any additional comments?

An up to date version would be wonderful, for the SYS-401

Python Programming Techniques is an audiobook that is ideal for persons that are interested in learning about the basics of Python programming before they move on to learn more advanced techniques offered by the program. The book is not for those who have no interest at all in python programming. It is specifically geared for those individuals that have a need to learn how it all works whether it is for their job or for scholastic purposes.

What did you love best about Python Programming Techniques?

Look, it's an hour long book. And it's only $5. You will not learn to code in an hour from an audio book. But it does cover terminology and basic coding procedures.
This comes in handy for people like me, who listened to it on the way in to work, and home.

Any additional comments?

I would suggest listening to this one first, and then listen to: Python Programming, by Scotts, Jason
