Question by J.D. Lim: Where can I find the best and easy to understand WordPress tutorials?

I’d start here: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Lessons
I’d also recommend: http://net.tutsplus.com/articles/web-roundups/top-50-wordpress-tutorials/ for more advanced information
Theme editing for beginners: http://www.flisterz.com/2008/12/24/how-to-edit-wordpress-theme-or-css-for-beginners/
Since WordPress uses CSS for the theme layouts, this is a good resource for learning basic CSS: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/dreamweaver/articles/css_concepts.html and you can expand upon that greatly once you get your feet wet.
WordPress uses PHP for the engine, so understanding basic PHP will help, especially if you start getting into the advanced tutorials.
