Hi there, I was recently introduced to Mathematica and as someone who has never programmed before, at first glance the language looks very intuitive. I am trying out the software, and was hoping to get some suggestions from seasoned users on the best starting point in terms of a library of info for beginners like myself? The rest of learning will be trial and error. 

Thank you

Take a look at this list.  It has a section listing beginner tutorials.

My personal recommendation is Programming Paradigms using Mathematica.  It is very old, it has minor incompatibilities with version 9, and it doesn't discuss the newest features.  However, it is an excellent introductions to the basics that you need to know for any version.  I think it's still one of the best (free) starting points if you want to learn Mathematica well .
