It depends on what you plan to use Mathematica for.  If you would like
to understand the system well, and you are not in a hurry, take a look
at these notes:  http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/1847/
They are terribly outdated, but still useful to learn the core
language, especially if you don't have much programming experience.
Some exercises are included, too.

And, as others said, read the included documentation!  It is full of
good tutorials (suitable for beginners), though unfortunately it is a
bit more difficult to navigate in version 6 than in previous versions.
