I would start with the Help that is included in Eclipse, it contains a lot of information about using Eclipse.

There is a list of books about Eclipse on the Eclipse website.

I doubt if any of those books will be of help to a beginner. Most of them are too old anyway.

You can download Eclipse for free from http://www.eclipse.org/.

Then work through the free series of videos on "Eclipse and Java for Total Beginners" from the Eclipse Tutorial website. You can download the videos individually - each one lasts about 10-15 minutes. They're a bit old (2008, Eclipse 3.3), but it's a good quick introduction to the basics of using Eclipse, including test-driven development of a very simple Java application using JUnit in Eclipse.

The same site has more Eclipse videos on other topics as well.

Well, I should imagine so. That post was dated 2008!
