Ouch.

  It's not updated for v. 6 (yet -- new edition is due in May 2009), but Ruskeep=C3=A4=C3=A4's _Mathematica_Navigator_ is a great way to work through a lot of the possibilities of the program.

   Incidentally, I reject the premise: there's no way anyone is going to master the system in a month, or probably in several months. Mostly this is due to the richness of the environment and the esotericism of many of the special commands and functions. Partly, it's due to various bugs and inconsistencies, and lack of comprehensive documentation.

   Good luck.
