Composite1 is dead on about VASST – They are very good and have stellar software as well as training.
You can also go through the archives (if you have enough time) of the official Sony Vegas forums (http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/forums/default.asp). Some folks there are less than tolerant of newbies (I’ve been flamed before) but most are very helpful (including folks like Douglas Spotted Eagle, John Rofrano, many others).
There is also Ed Troxel’s forum (Ed is the author of Excalibur) – http://www.jetdv.com/vegas/forum/index.php – Ed also has how-to newsletters on the site.
As a rule, read all you can – I’d probably stay away from the YouTube based tutorials as I have found some that are just plain wrong (or more annoying than me at the very least). The forums here plus the ones I mentioned will give you a good background.
