1.Yes you can use C
2. Are you asking us to give you requirements for making accounting software or are you asking for programming skill requirements?
3.You could use Oracle
4.I don't think there is a specific book out there for just making accounting software with C, there are books that will teach you the language and then you can apply what you learned to make the software.

1.Yes you can use C
I think the OP was asking about C# not C.

hi ...

to give more specific advices you should add much more information about the requirements. may be it should be a webbased application? may be it should be platform independent? etc. etc. ... you could use any database or programming language to write a accounting software but some are more suitable then others depending to specific requirements ...

kind regards
