look online there are ALOT of tutorials for everything online. some good some ok. once you learn what you can then go for the most comprehensice book you can find. from one beginner to another i find this very useful. some of orielly's stuff is a bit over my head knowing nothing if i know little about it. after reading a couple of online tutorials or guides it makes things alot faster, however the quality of work is much better in most printed publications. and if your going for any certification exams books are almost essential.
Even though im marked for death I will spark till i loose my breath
