Welcome to J2ME pal, i think you should start with CLDC 1.1 and MIDP 2.0.
mmmmm I haven't found a perfect good. But i think best way is to, follow
SCMAD syllabus given and study the docs.

why i shouldnt start with MIDP 3 ? the difference is a lot ?

i found a great book to start "apress - creating mobile games" which explains everything i need to know about games with J2ME

do you think that is a good start or should i start making app instead of games ?

IMO, MIDP 3 does not have a bright future ahead. Not many smartphones support it now, or will -again, IMO- do so in the future. Before you spend much time on any JME version, I'd advise to evaluate what you want to achieve by learning JME, which versions are supported on devices out in the field, and whether or not other mobile options -iPhone, Android- might help you accomplish your goals better.
