I like Stylin' with CSS, and SAMS's Teach Yourself HTML & CSS in 24 Hours is also good.

I did take a CSS course, but they taught out of the Lynda books.

I am a big fan of CSS: The Missing Manual. It allows you to either start from the beginning and read through to the end, or open the index and answer specific questions on what you're doing.

The best way to learn anything is to do it. Make some web pages with bad CSS ("Why is my text always falling off the side?!?") and then look up the solutions (I like the W3Schools pages a lot, too). There's nothing like working through some bad CSS to give you confidence in working with CSS.

I also agree with the sketchbook - I keep one at home and one at the office. If you know what you want your page to "look like" it will become much easier to write CSS that matches your layout.
