    Use this forum, use Youtube, consider taking the OffSec course if you're really into it and just play around with it a lot.

    Censer,

    BackTracK carrys hundreds of tools. We suggest you to start with fundamentals before using any tool. If you have any question, just use search available on the forum.

    For videos: Video Groups
    For books, you can have a look at http://www.amazon.com/BackTrack-Assu.../dp/1849513945

    If you're not familiar with the command line, you probably want to get yourself very comfortable with Linux first. My suggestion, install a Linux distribution and use it without a GUI for several weeks until you know your way around the system using only the command line.

    For books I recommend "Metasploit: The Penetration Tester's Guide" over "BackTrack: Assuring Security by Penetration Testing." It has more reliable sources, more explanation instead of as much command line output, and also cheaper. Learn the command line if you haven't already, this means a lot.

    I suggest learning a good bit a networking and how to use the terminal before getting into backtrack.

    I second that. The Metasploit book is fantastic.
