    Humm -- buy a book and start reading with page 1 It takes a lot of time and effort to learn c programming -- don't expect it to happen overnight. Your other studies should be your priority right now, put your time and efforts in them and don't worry about programming just yet.

    I'm studying electrical engineering and also have a C course as part of my degree requirements, nearly finished the C course now, only the exam to go. Not sure what you're asking here though. I would say the best way to study C, as for any programming language, is to practice. Write C code, lots of it.

    The only other thing I'd suggest for an exam is learning the syntax of various common functions, especially if it's a closed book exam.

    I'm studying Computing Engineering and I studied C in my first year. My advice is, is to really understand the basics. And really practice these. Buy a good starter book like 'C in 21 days' or something similar and read what they say and go through the exercises. Once you understand programming fundamentals. Move on to pointers...and really really really understand this subject and beyond and you will suceed. Trust me, after returning to C since the C course in my first, my pointer theory has got a bit rusty.

    As we all say, practice makes perfect.
