The third course in the specialization Introduction to Programming in C introduces the programming constructs pointers, arrays, and recursion. Pointers provide control and flexibility when programming in C by giving you a way to refer to the location of other data. Arrays provide a way to bundle data by guaranteeing sequences of data are grouped together. Finally, recursive functions—functions that call themselves—provide an alternative to iteration that are very useful for implementing certain algorithms.

TOP REVIEWS FROM POINTERS, ARRAYS, AND RECURSION
The last project is the most difficult one I ever had in a while. I am enjoying it very much.
End of course project was challenging and fun. Lots of opportunity to learn how to debug memory issues with valgrind.
Very well designed hands-on training course for developing a real software program in C.
Good course, tricky problems that make you think. Got VERY frustrated a few times but completed it. This also got me into emacs but with vim keybindings.
