Forget old-fashioned C programming books that assume the reader is a computer hardware expert and teach frustrating, old-fashioned coding styles. If your students know any language at all, Zed A. Shaw's Learn C the Hard Way can help them get started fast with modern C programming. This book/CD package is called 'The Hard Way,' but it's really quite easy: it just requires discipline, practice, and persistence. Shaw teaches how to write modern, clean, clear C code through dozens of brilliantly-crafted exercises, most on two pages. Shaw offers plenty of extra help through 5+ full hours of CD-based teaching video. Nothing important comes without discipline, practice, and persistence.
