Er.... "learn it by heart"?
Seriously though, the only way is to go out and actually start using it. The documentation is online at jakarta.apache.org and there are links to the mailing list archives there as well.

There is a shortcut. If you download a small jakarta project, such as Log4J, which is built by ant. It is a good and simple example for you to learn ant.
Actually, you hit two birds with one stone.

Well, I stumbled across this late, the post is stale, but I'll go ahead and say:
The best way to start with Ant is to download the sources. They come with a 'bootstrap' binary copy.
You use the bootstrap copy to build your own new copy straight from the sources.

To add one more resource about Ant.
The book Java Tools for Extreme programming covering Ant,JUnit and Cactus is a good starting point.
