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
Awesome Course. A very well structured course to learn about C deeply.
This was an amazing experience to be a part of this course. It helped me to boost up my confidence.
very informative and helpful quizzes, readings, and videos
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.
About the Introductory C Programming Specialization
This specialization develops strong programming fundamentals for learners who want to solve complex problems by writing computer programs. Through four courses, you will learn to develop algorithms in a systematic way and read and write the C code to implement them. This will prepare you to pursue a career in software development or other computational fields.
