Try Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson

Also, here are some websites with tutorials:

They all helped me. Also, when you have time, shoot raw and try shooting the same shot with different settings. Then later, when you look at them on your computer, if you are using DPP (software included with your new canon), right click on the photo and click "info" and you will see all of your camera settings for that photo, including aperture, shutter speed, ISO, etc. If you have taken multiple pics of the same subject but with different settings, you can then see how the different settings affected your photo. All it costs is a little time. That's the great thing about digital. Most photo editing software worth its salt will also display the EXIF or camera settings. DPP and ZoomBrowser are just programs that come with all new EOS DSLRs.

Have fun, I have!
