Welcome to Biggerpockets. The Ultimate Beginner's Guide is now a course that you can now watch. Check it under Education. It would be a good material to start with. Also J Scott's book on Flipping houses would be a good resource as well. 

@Paul Timmons just advised another investor new to BP to go to www.biggerpockets.com/starthere

So easy to use, right?  It gives you a great idea of how BP can be indispensible for the new investor.  Welcome.
