I'm just wondering if anyone could give me some basic pointers to C - some beginner tutorials and such. We're gonna have classes of it, but I want to have some preexisting knowledge on the matter.

I've not worked with C much, but since it's (almost) a subset of C++, learning the non-OO part of C++ might get you somewhere.

Why are they teaching you C? Seems to me that C++ would be much more practical to learn.

How so?
There are enough programs being written in C and still counting :xD:

Knowing at least how to read C is definitely a necessity for any serious programmer, but I wouldn't focus too much on becoming proficient at it. As a language it's somewhat bare, and it lacks the facilities that make other languages better.
