For self-study, I would recommend having at least one textbook available, you can find a 
list at http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Books
I found Simon Thompson's Craft of Functional Programming an excellent guide into the 
language when I first met Haskell, I'm sure other books will be too.

Apart from a real paper book, I can recommend reading the wikibook at
it's continually work in progress, so much of it is not yet polished, but it contains a 
huge amount of cool and useful information.

More tutorials (of different quality) can be found at 
, look at some and read those which give the best impression.

And for the questions you will certainly have at some time, there are almost always a lot 
of friendly and helpful people on the haskell irc-channel, reading the 
beginners at haskell.org mailing list (lower traffic than haskell-cafe, so your questions 
will be in less danger of being inundated by other messages) and haskell-cafe.
