I am a 16 year old junior in high school. And I know QBASIC to a certain degree. But I want to learn how to program in C. I bought Discover Programming. But it is hard and complicated. Is their any easier or more fun ways of learning the language? Or am I destined to be confused forever?
Thanks a million                      Joel Ewest

You can take courses, or read a book. Those are the only ways. Unless of course you find someone who is willing to teach you.

There is book for C in the 21 days series that should be accessible for you. There is a whole series: Learn Java in 21 days, Learn Basic in 21 days etc. etc. and Learn C in 21 days.

I agree that the "...in 21 days" series is nice but I've noticed that they often have errors (mostly spelling...deadly in programming). In my opinion, the book of choice is the "C Primer Plus". I know a lot of colleges that uses it, and the learning curve is very smooth.

I think it's from McGrawHill (if you're interested, let me know...I'll check)

Ciao!
