I strongly recommend Shaw and Tigg, "Mathematica, Getting Started, 
Getting it Done" which is a "project based" introduction.  Wonderfully 
useful.

Given that you are at a University, I assume you are a scientist, and 
hence you might want to check out another good book, that of Bahder, 
which I believe is titled "Mathematica for Scientists and Engineers" or 
something like that.

Hope this helps -- tom
