Try Learn to Program by Chris P.[1], also take a look at _why’s
Poignant Guide[2]

I liked the Pragmatic Programmers Ruby Guide - Pickaxe. You can find
an older version online for free or the latest edition (works with 1.8)
at any bookstore.
http://www.rubycentral.com/book/

Why’s Poignant Guide is another good one.
http://poignantguide.net/ruby/

I would recommend using those books in parallel with Ruby Q.zes.

Ruby Q.zes come in all difficulty levels. Here are some links to
some easier problems:

http://www.rubyquiz.com/quiz14.html

http://www.rubyquiz.com/quiz84.html

http://www.rubyquiz.com/quiz28.html

Those are at least work trying after you visit the other sites
mentioned. Remember to ask us for help when needed too. We’re here
to help! :wink:

Posted via http://www.ruby-forum.com/.

Ruby for Rails is a good accelerated tutorial

The Ruby Way and Teach yourself in 21 days books are what i used. Ruby
Way is coming out in a new version, but the originals are still good
resources,

The home-base for Ruby docs is Ruby-Doc: http://www.ruby-doc.org/.
They’ve got some good getting started docs there.

Also, I’ve found that, as you learn, it’s helpful to periodically
refer back to the quick-ref:
