Spring has many parts to it. Your best bet is to grab a book such as Spring in Action, 3rd Edition.

The reference documentation from Spring is also a good source of information.

@Epifano - Spring framework has many components
Some of them are

a. Spring MVC
b. Spring ORM
c. Core Spring
d. Spring AOP.

every component is big in itself.

So if you want to target Spring framework from beginning then you should first learn Core Spring (IOC concepts) . Then you can proceed to learn any of the components like Spring MVC, Spring AOp etc

As suggested above- 'Spring in Action' is really a good point to start with.

You can start with one module at a time - like DI, MVC, DAO, Restful Services etc. There are tutorials on net for each of them.
Happy learning.

I agree that you learn it through the book then the manual. By all means, the manual is massive and very detailed!!! I guess it's like a Spring Bible. But it has so much details and texts... you get to miss the popular features that are commonly used. Spring In Action is definitely A+ for me but I like to add Spring Recipe 2.5 (not 3!!!). When I first started to use Spring, I felt like a deer caught in car's headlight but Spring Recipe 2.5 answered all my questions. After you read few books, I definitely would read over the documents. You'll find many "Oh~ I can also do it that way"
