    If I want to start with C before learning objective-c, and I have no coding knowledge, what apps/tools do I need to do the stuff that would be in the books? Any books on C that use XCode?

    EDIT: Do you think Steven Kochan's book is good enough for a complete novice?

    What books are good for understanding how to use xcode?

    In general try to learn the language independent of the IDE. When you are learning C, you basically only need a little bit of knowledge in how to setup a project in XCode. Afterwards you will mostly be editing source code and clicking one button (build/run).

    You can just as easily learn c from the command line. That's how I learned back in the day :)
