    I jsut started playing around with C. Im using a book called "C ALL INE ONE REFERENCE FOR DUMMES" by Dan Gookin

    Very good book with ALOT OF examples and excercises. I recommend it. Quite a think book but could have been halved if the author left out all the weird jokes and sarcasm.....

    Programming in C (3rd edition), by Stephen Kochan

    This book goes into good detail, in my opinion. Kochan does have an affection for maths, as well as prime and fibonacci numbers, which is somewhat annoying. Regardless, Kochan's book does teach concepts to the reader. The exercises at the end of each chapter are a good self-evaluation tool. Fortunately, this book does not contain screenshots! I don't know why, but I get sick of books that have pointless screenshots of different buttons in Windows XP. It's especially annoying if the screenshots revolve around a particular IDE.

    I bought Programming in C from Borders, in Auckland (New Zealand). It was published in '05, and it's still going strong!

    I followed a few books to learn as far as basics are concerned.But not all aspects are fulfilled.They are "LET US C" by YPK,"DATASTRUCTURE WITH C" by Seymoure Lipschutz and"OBJECT ORIENTED C++" by BALAGURUSWAMY.But in case of DS I found Lipschutz more efficient for beginners than Tanenbum's.
    "1st allow yourself to make the basics clear and then step ahead to make a glorious victory over the subject and unleash your power to manipulate it !"

    C Programming

    This link contains has detailed notes from a course a professor taught, it is practically a book on c programming. There are also questions, tutorials, and assignments all with answers. It is nicely structured and I rarely found myself needing a book for reference while following the notes.

    It is a free solution, and is easier to navigate compared to a pdf.
