I saw Classroom in a Book for Photoshop 7, a step by step introduction, which to me seems excellent for beginners. Why Adobe has published many Classroom Books for many programs, but not for Elements? Why not? Such a book (with CD) could be very helpful.

A good many of the lessons in Photoshop Classroom in a Book 7 are
applicable to Photoshop Elements 2 with some minor modifications in a
few of them.

I really like ’50 Fast Digital Photo Techniques’ by Gregory Georges too, and I also bought some of the beginner books, which I kept and use for reference.
I also bought some of the CD training discs, but don’t seem to use them so much now. I was a beginner in February. It seems sometimes frustrating, but just take a break when you get stuck on something, and come back to it later.
THe key to learning PSE is to just keep trying, don’t be afraid to keep pushing the buttons with a book at your elbow, and when you get stuck on something, ask here.
I have taken on-line PSE lessons, and find that they are the best for me.
I am now addicted to PSE!
