Until you post a more specific problem, the only thing I can
suggest is to read the documentation available via the
Documentation Center. Specifically, the pages that appear with
the following entries in the search box

tutorial/SparseArrays - LinearAlgebra
tutorial/SparseArrays - ManipulatingLists

The latter two are linked to the page that appears for the
first. The links are found near the bottom of the page.
