Oh boy.. Spring is huge an no one will every master every component.

There are some good Spring MVC tutorials around. I would start there.
Then Spring JDBC, maybe Spring Batch.

It is Spring and servlets neither of these are acronyms, so they should not be written in CAPS.

What is Spring? Its a lot of things there are a lot of projects under the Spring umbrella.

Go here for an explanation of each:
http://www.springsource.org/projects

As for where to start, you can Google for tutorials as well as I can I imagine, or you might consider picking up a book like Spring in Action. Their reference documentation is very thorough so take a look at that as well. The only advice I would give is look for tutorials that use current versions of Spring (3.x) and start with the core Spring Framework and save learning the other Spring projects for later.

Good Luck

Spring In Action was very useful when I was learning Spring. It not only tells you how Spring does things the way it does, it also tells you why it does it. I would definetely reccomend who has even little bit of experience developing java apps to to start with it.
