The PowerScripting Podcast is pretty nice to get through the basics and then general PowerShell. Start from the beginning though as the cmdlets covered in the first 2-3 shows are invaluable (not counting show 0 here).

This is a pretty good starter level post on PowerShell and SharePoint by the resource I send all of my questions: SharePoint 2010, PowerShell what’s the deal?

Oh and I almost forgot the free ebook at
