Master C is a computer based training system designed to teach you how to program in C. It's effectively a book on a disk, utilizing the power of the computer to present the material in a more interesting and intelligent fashion.
The Master C disk guides you through all the essential C topics-from data types to pointers and data structures. It teaches you, quizzes you, notices problems you are having, and recommends action. A sophisticated answer judgment technique accepts rough responses and even misspellings. Master C features windows, an on-line glossary, a calculator, and electronic bookmarks, and it keeps track of student scores for classroom use.
The Master C book provides lessons you can use when you're away from your computer, and it features a reference section that explains the use and syntax of every keyword and function in C.
Master C allows you to study the C language in a free- form, non-linear manner. You select a topic of interest from a table of contents, then Master C presents the material on screen. As you read the text, Master C periodically asks questions to determine your understanding of the topic. If you answer incorrectly, Master C presents the appropriate text for review, then tests your understanding once again.
Using this technique, Master C has proven to he a very effective teacher. In a pilot study at IBM, students using Master C retained 19% more knowledge than students who learned from a lecturer.
