Curl up to a good book. I started out new a few months ago. Martin's book is fantastic.

Personally I'd never say that YouTube tutorials are the "best approach."

Adobe makes an excellent Lightroom 4 User Guide available for free and my advice would be to read and absorb it. The User Guide has everything you need to know to master the program: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/lightroom/using/lightroom_4_help.pdf

A lot of great recommendations. I prefer video tutorials and ended up buying George Jardine's Library and Develop tutorials and couldn't be happier. I've also heard good things about Victoria Bampton("Lightroom Queen"). Adobe TV is also a great free source of information.

Click on the Sample tab, and you'll see the link to download Chapter 4.

They do a nice job but unless I missed something, it's for LR3.
