"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Salesforce.com offers a class (in person or online), but it is very expensive. It is something that your company should cover if you are taking over that admin role. https://help.salesforce.com/HTTrainingCourseDetail?id=a2330000000PfQKAA0

They will go over what you need to know in order to pass. I would highly suggest taking notes. Any area you don't quite grasp, you can further expand your knowledge using their success community. There is a wealth of information in there that will help you reach more in-depth of different areas covered.

Do you have prior experience as an admin? Classroom type learning is great, but I found with SFDC that practicing and using it everyday is the best way to learn. Another great thing to do is talk with other admins and pick their brains as to how their companies use Salesforce. Each company has their own unique customization and workflows that will help you better grasp what the platform can do that you may not be aware of.
