There are many tutorials and books but unless you "bind" this knowledge to something familiar you won't get up very quickly...
If you are lucky and you are an IT man in  a company that has an ERP that uses CR for reporting then i guess you could start by modifying one of the existing..
If not and you are a developer try to make a report for something you want......

DO you have any background in reporting tools?

WHat version of Crystal are you using?

SAP/Crystal has some excellent tutorials (may need an SAP account)
http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-8514

SAP/Crystal site
http://scn.sap.com/community/crystal-reports

Crystal for .Net site

Ken Hamady offers training and materials

There are several good books on Crystal Reports.

George Peck has written a series of books The Complete Crystal Reports Reference.  He has an edition for each version of Crystal.

Visual Studio uses CR as a "plugin"...you can read a tutorial with sample and links here..
Here is the official page for CR for VS

You probably want to find out which version you will be using.

There are some differences between the full stand-alone versions and the Visual Studio version.
They have a free trial on the full versions also.

There is a link to it on the Crystal site I listed above.
