If you understand programming and learn quickly, you can start by just
reading a good solid book on ruby to gain an understanding of how
classes and objects work. Once you achieve that understanding you are
ready for rails.

IMHO, you can always learn a lot. I’ve read the following books in
order:

Apress - Beginning Ruby - From Novice to Professional
Foundation Rails 2
Agile Web D. with Rails 3rd Edition
Enterprise Integration with Ruby

For instructor led courses, I would recommend the following:

http://www.pragmaticstudio.com/rails

For online resources, I would recommend the following:

http://guides.rails.info/

Next, I would recommend the following books:

http://www.pragprog.com/titles/ruby3/programming-ruby-1-9
http://www.pragprog.com/titles/ruby/programming-ruby
http://www.pragprog.com/titles/rails3/agile-web-development-with-rails-third-edition

Futhermore, if you’re looking for a deeper understanding of the
Ruby object model, you might want to take a look at the following
screencast series:

http://www.pragprog.com/screencasts/v-dtrubyom/the-ruby-object-model-and-metaprogramming

Note: The above series is worth its weight in gold.

Last but not least, this is a minimum list of resources that should get
you
on your way to
getting a firm grasp of both Ruby and Rails and it’s also good but not
necessary to have a
good understanding of Ruby before you begin Rails.

Good luck,
