Well, go onto amazon and look around for a python book that has good reviews or do a google search and you will find lots of tutorials on python. You can pick up on how to use python from the tutorials if you don't want to get a book. If you have troubles with a piece of code, you can post it in the forums and if it seems like you have put forth effort. Ill be more then glad to help you.

Get the book "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist". Either pay for a hardcopy or get the (author approved) free PDF which covers Python 2.x and mentions 3.x in the footnotes (or get the tweaked PDF to book to better cover 3.x). There's a few downloadable programs you can get as well, but I don't think they're necessary (the related chapter can be skipped without missing anything)

Next, download Pythonportable (either the 2.x or 3.x version).

This will have Python, IDLE (the interactive interpreter) and a good IDE. I recommend putting all this on a flashdrive so you can take it with you and keep everything together in one place (you might also want foxit reader orSumatra PDF portable to open the PDF).

Once you've got this done, the last step is simply opening the IDE, opening the PDF, and following along with the book.thumb.gif
