The best way is to learn first C Programming Language, this is the basic and widely use since 1970's until today and beyond future computer technology. If you already have the knowledge, logic and applications of C Programming it is easier to understand other Programming Languages C++, Objective-C, Java including Web Development Programming and more and much many more, because C Programming Language is the basis or the root of all programming languages. Java or .net, it depends on your scope of application or fields you gonna use them. Java is a universal programming language can be use on any kind or type of technologies. .Net if your going to work on a company or groups that use MS Windows system and applications. Every computer programming languages you've learn should take into practice and application because this is an art and a genuinely talent wether your in a company or plainly just by yourself for just hobby or for your life ambitions to become realities.

Actually I just started recently study and learning C, and my computer is an Apple Mac. Naturally, my objective is to develop applications from iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Mac OS including some Web Developments. Before I'm going to develop applications from Apple's devices I should learn or the best way first to learn is by learning C then going to Objective-C. The after that I could indulge to Java or C++. Sorry I have a little knowledge about learning C on MS Windows if that you gonna use. But, as far as I know making, the procedures, methods and terminologies on developing by using C programming are the same on all Operating Systems either MS Windows, Apple OS or Linux it only differs was on the Compiler that is going to use or the conversion of plain english language into machine language. On Apple, learning C are normally provided by Apple the basic tools (like compiler) and packages to develop also free to use, including SDK for iOS or for iPhones, iPod Touch and iPads. If you are using Apple Macs just go to webpage of Apple Developer Center or developer.apple.com you have to be registered in able to avail those goodies including tutorials. My E-book of learning C: (just search on Amazon or download it free (I mean free - I hope you know what I mean about free.....lol) - Learn C on the Mac.pdf Other E-books basically for all: - C Programming Language (2nd Edition) Brian W. Kernighan.pdf or - Practical C Programming, 3rd Edition (1997) Basically, any of these books or tutorials it ALWAYS have the first thing to learn or to know is able to know-how to produce the "Hello World" line of commands, terminologies, logic, syntax, methodologies, etc..... Just search for more on the web that satisfied and comfort you well. Or to make it really easier or much broader to learn C, is to have a crash-course or real classroom tutorials on C programming language from any schools on your locality. In able to learn, know and understand C programming language or any other programming languages is about 3 to 6 months, and of course it all depends on you. And to master them, just what I said earlier you have to practice and apply them.
