Looking for good free course to learn C


What is a good place to learn C/C++ for free? Google will find thousands of sites, but I want to know what free programs have worked the best for the most people.

I am reading http://www.nongnu.org/c-prog-book/online/index.html "A google find" Looking for suggestions for something possibly more effective.

I learned to program C by using Mix Power C for DOS. Well, that was back in the DOS days. Mix Power C comes with an excelent book that is both a toutorial and reference guide. At the time the book and software were $50.00 and were considered a good value. Well, I just Googled them and found a web site. Apearently the product is still available. Only it now costs only $19.99. Maybe set up FreeDOS in a VM and play with it? The software may not be all that useable. But, the book is great.

Hmmm...
Your Linux should come with a GCC compiler. Perhaps a good 'dead tree' on GCC would be in order?
