The last year i have been learning other languages besides C/C++. I have found that books help me out a lot. SO, Should I read Acelerated C++:Practicing by example Or Beginning C++ (both are in the book section of this website under beginners) Or suggust a book that you think would work better.

Accelerated C++ is by Moo et al right? I've only heard good stuff about that book and if you ask me it seems to take the right approach to things. Problem is that your thread title says C not C++... But if it's C++ you intend on learning my guess is that it would be a good book to learn from.

For learning C I'd suggest:
C: How to Program by Deitel and Deitel

For learning C++ I'd suggest:
C++: How to Program by Deitel and Deitel

They are both extremely good textbooks on the subject, covering the subjects very thoroughly while still (and this is key for a textbook) maintaining readability. They are toward the expensive end of the spectrum, but definately worth the investment.

We used this in our computer science classes at the University of Cincinnati. I didn't like it that much, but I did already knew C++ before using it. It's been awhile since I've used it, and so I don't remember exactly why I didn't like it.

I haven't read either of the books you mentioned so I can't vouch for them. I'll look at my collection when I get home to see if I can suggest any of them.

When you say have been learning other languages besides C/C++, does this mean you learned C/C++ and haven't used it in awhile, or you are new to C/C++?
