FTP to and change into the directory
/pub/Enhancements/MathLink/0206-693.  In that directory is the
MathLink Tutorial, written by Todd Gayley, which is an excellent
primer for MathLink.  It comes in both notebook and PostScript
format, so you can obtain whichever is more convenient for you.

Sorry...I don't really know a good C book (I hated all of the ones
I learned C from).  Hopefully, someone else has some suggestions.
However, just so you know, almost any bookstore will be packed
with books on C; there is plenty of variety out there.
