SQL reporting services

I need to learn SQL reporting services very quickly for projects coming up. Does anybody know of any good tutorials out there to get me started? Also, I only have the free version of SQL on my computer... how would (could?) I use that to learn?

SQL Server 2008 express with Advanced Services contains Reporting Services and it is free, don't know if you already have that one, if not you can download it from here:

SQL Server 2008 Books online is a very complete offline help that you can install on you computer, here is the link:

You can also learn a lot of stuff on Microsoft's TechNet section for reporting services:

I already have SQL Server 2008 express  can I just add the reporting services?

I am going through the install and got to the server configuration screen and keep getting a error "The service account is not valid". Not sure what to do.... screen shot attached.

Try by clicking  "Use the same account for all SQL Server services" button.
