Journal Journal: How did you learn C? 1

I've never been much of a programmer (a few BASIC programs were my claim to fame), but as of late, I've found that I've gotten good using languages such as Expect, sh, and PHP.

I'd like to progress into C. I've tried Java, VB, and even C++, but have no desire for OOP just yet.

How did you learn C? I'm a visual learner and picked up what I know by doing projects. How useful are books, courses, and such for learning C? How long did it take to actually become productive and start creating useful apps?
