First suggestion is to learn how to Google. It's the most important tool a SharePoint developer has. For example, a search for "most effective way to learn sharepoint" would have pointed you to several worthwhile resources on the topic.

Since I'm here, I'll point you to a blog post I put together: Getting Started with SharePoint 2010 Development–Links and Resources


Since you have had experience with MS Technologies, I would suggest you visit:

MSDN SharePoint Developer Training

It has more than enough information to get you started.
