    Depends on your level and experience...

    Seems to cover the same stuff as the MikroC manual from what I remember.

    PIC Book

    The book turned out to be a good starter for somone to learn abt PIC microcontrollers and their assembly language.

    Nothing to beat Microchip website and their forum.any book will only follow but not lead !!!

    the said book also gives C code and assembly side by side. it really helps.

    Hi all
    My recommendation is the following book. Get used one for about 50.00 dollars.

    PIC Microcontroller: An Introduction to Software & Hardware Interfacing

    http://www.amazon.com/PIC-Microcontroller-Introduction-Software-Interfacing/dp/1401839673/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1259259087&sr=1-1[/URL]
