- AppendTo: this one is lovely. Recommend for step-by-step learning
- Code Academy jQuery: Same as above. Totally free and helps you learn the in and outs of jQuery.
You could start off with these if you’d like a hard copy instead of the web tutorials.
Find what works best for you.
If you’re more of a visual person, definitely try out the Code Academy walk throughs. Going through those is like having a one-on-one lesson with a teacher, but you guide yourself through instead.
