Today, was the first day of my C programming course. I only have 2 classes this semester because I want to knock out the RHCSA/CE during the holidays or sometime in January.
Side note: Did you know Visual Studio 2012 is a free download from Microsoft? http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30682
I found out through my class Syllabus. This course requires an IDE with an ANSI C compiler, so the Professor suggested Visual Studio.
