I just wanted to point people to a blog post I wrote called, "Getting Started with Adobe Premiere Pro (CS4, CS5, & CS5.5)." In it, I have my top recommendations for learning materials, including: blog posts, book excerpts, and video tutorials. Please take a look if you need a place to get started with learning Premiere Pro.
