    C - the basis for C++. It was written in the 70s.

    C++ - a "better C" (Stroustrop, guy who made it). It is an extension of C. All good C programs are also C++ programs, but the reverse is not true. Contains elements that generally make large scale programming easier.

    C# - not directly related to C or C++, as a C or C++ program is not a C# program. A very new langauge, much more closely related to Java than C or C++.

    I'd recommend starting with a beginner's C++ book, but many will suggest learning C first.
    Prove you can code in C++ or C# at TopCoder, referrer rrenaud

    Stroustrop would recommend _not_ learning C first before C++, actually. And so would I ^_^
