Post Robot C Books?
Does anyone have suggestions for Robot C books? I am a coach of a Mindstorm team now making the transition to Robot C. Thanks

There aren't any RobotC books. There are books about robotics and C, but no RobotC books. However, I do plan to write a book about RobotC eventually.

I went through some of the examples in the program but I would like to be able to give my team an introduction to RobotC. I know there are classes but they are a tad pricy for my "young" 9-14 year old team. No books....how is that POSSIBLE?

This isn't a book per se, but it is a 70+ page PDF that helped me out a lot; I used it most when I was in the age range of your team, and it's really great:

For a "young" team, the RobotC tutorial should be very helpful at least to start with.

Yes, I can attest to that as it's the material I used to start learning RobotC when I was 12 (about a year ago). It supplies a solid foundation to work upon. After I completed that, pretty much all the help I needed was in the internal documentation. Of course, the forums have also been a great help.

For younger students the videos work pretty well too!
