I would like to use Struts for a project that I will be working on.
I am fluent with JSPs and Servlets and am certified as a Sun Web Developer...

How long does it take to get up and running with struts ?
Is it hard to learn ?

I am also learning Struts but if you have a good background of JSP and Servlets then learning Struts is not a big issue. I think it may take few weeks.

Can someone point me to some resources to learn Struts quickly ?

I plan on writing some small applications that use struts, is this the best way to go about this ?

I'd start by deploying and examining the struts-examples.war file that comes with the Struts download. Then, I'd look for some tools. If you're already using Eclipse, I'd suggest using MyEclipse. It has some good tools that support Struts development. NetBeans 5.0 also has some nifty struts tools. I'd then pick a tutorial geared specifically toward the tool you're going to be using.

This should get you going. If you're going to be doing heavy-duty struts development, I'd also suggest getting one of Struts Development books out there. Search by author for Ted Husted. His stuff is good.
