Sparkfun's tutorials go from the Arduino Assembly Guide, a Quick Start Guide to get you using an Arduino through guides for a host of add on "shields" made for all sorts of things.

The Arduino tutorials show you have to do all sorts of things with the Arduino - with the "sketches" to go with them - and explanations of what and how each one does what it does.
