That may be the price if you order a paper copy directly from ANSI/ISO,
but the C standard has also been published as a regular book
(ISBN 978-0-470-84573-8) which is not quite so expensive.
For a beginner the standard itself is probably a bit too heavy-going.
The book usually recommended is 'The C programming language, Second edition'
by Kernighan and Ritchie. ( http://cm.bell-labs.com/cm/cs/cbook/ )
