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.

    I have a popular *free* series on how to use WordPress, which includes a really clear free PDFreport on how to install it on a website quickly.

    You can sign up for the series via the pop up box that appears on my site below:

    WordPress is awesome once you know the basics! :) I enjoy helping people learn how to use it because I was VERY frustrated when I was a newbie trying to make sense of all of the programmer talk about WordPress. I believe in making things a lot more simple – starting slow and easy :)
