Here are a few good links for getting started with LaTeX:
First, there is the great What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) software Lyx, which is a good transition from your typical word processor to LaTeX.
I also like the package TeXnicCenter, which is really simple to install on a Windows machine and the documentation is particularly nice.
For introductory information, mathematics professor Ethan Bloch has a very comprehensive web page.
For more advanced tips in digestible chunks, I really love the Blog on Latex Matters.
And last but not least, let’s not forget the AMS.
These sites reflect what has worked for me. Please share what works for you.
