    Learned C in college from a class. Learned "C++" from a book and a couple discussion sections. Learned better C++ from better books and internet forums like this one. Learned programming from classes in college.

    With the right books you don't need to go to school to learn the language, but it would probably be a little easier. For learning programming in general it is probably much more important to go to school, although still not essential.

    I took a basic C course in college after I left school and then moved on to uni where I study C++. I still use C for small programs and self projects, its doesnt hurt to know both

    Books, internet and experimentation... lots, lots and lots of experimentation.
    Annoyingly "Introduction to C" was one of the modules this year in uni - I only attended 3 after talks with my course director
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.
