I think this, and your other responses, suggest what you are really good at is talking about what you think you are learning ... rather than really learning.

To reach mid-level mastery [1] of any of C, C++, C#, Java, for most mere mortals beginning to program is going to take a year, or more, of hard work.

The tendency to imagine you know more than you know is as dangerous as imagining you know what you don't know.

When someone as gifted and experienced as Richard MacCutchan gives you advice, you should take it !

That's great that you find C compelling, but, is it possible you are motivated by a desire to avoid Java which may be necessary for your studies ?

[1] I would define this as being able to create an application that runs on a specific OS, on specific hardware, has a UI, and does something useful

They are the ones we write code for, right?
