I think most of what I have came from the bookstores.  I've got 
probably 500+ dollars in so-called C textbooks on the shelf right 
now.

Start with the one from Herbert Schildt, then fill in the gaps with 
whatever pulls your trigger standing in front of the rack at Barnes & 
Noble etc.  The first purchase should also include a copy of K&R #2.  
It should be used as the argument settler in case of confusion.  
Everything else is just so much, often way more verbose, frosting on 
the cake.

I looked at some VB code the other night that a friend was working on.  
Quite a lot being done in 100 lines of code, but I've never seen such 
a batch of spagetti in my life.  Crap used but not pre-defined all 
over the place.  Half an hour of talking about it to Jim and I had a 
headache.  That stuff could convert a well trained programmer into a 
blithering idiot.  Scarey.
