I am not new to embedded designs an C, but the PIC's awesome number of processors and function register names etc. had me baffeled, but this book was a disapointment to me. Right at the beginning it presents the PIC18 Explorer board. So to be able to follow this book, I ordered this board, before going to deep into it. Unfortunately, it never used this board, instead it used a more expensive one. I cannot understand why the explorer board was pictured and explained in detail right at the beginning and then an other book is used. Well, I am upset, spending an other $100 for the explorer board, but not being able to get any help from this $60 book. I will still be reading this book in the hope that there will be some useful info for me. One thing I like is that the program listings include the MPLAB XC8 compiler listings.Including shipping, this book cost me $70 and I did get about $5 worth of info out of it.This might be a great book for some, it answers a lot of questions well, if you are looking for answers to the PIC18F45K2 using the EasyPIC V7 development board.
Do not use with Kindle. The examples are small pictures and their text cannot be made larger by changing the Kindle font.
Great book, but it depends heavily on MikroC for the advanced projects.
Well this is the one and only book that "embraces" the mighty XC8. Deserves five stars.Even though some examples are not clear and Mr. Ibrahim uses some very expensive equipments from time to time, this is a great book.
Calling this book an introduction is way far more fitting than calling it a projects book since it is the best PIC book out there.. It is very intriguing and stimulating and substantial reading. Don't let the Projects title scare you off like it did me.
