I would also suggest one of Kelby's books. While they are pretty basic, they will certainly expose you to the fundamentals of PP techniques to get you started.

Then, I think you will learn more tips & tricks right here on POTN than you can imagine, just by watching & reading the various posts. You can also learn some techniques by seeing what several people will do to the same original image. ... This helps you discern the benefits of different PP techniques.

I would recommend that you go to the Competitions section, and scroll back a couple months and view all of the Before & After threads in order, starting with Before & After # 1. ... They're up to Before & After # 27 right now, and you can see what a number of people have attempted on the same image.

... Start at Before & After # 1 to get the best feeling of how some of the PP approaches have changed slightly by some of the participants. Make a note of the techniques that you find useful, so you can attempt to learn them yourself.

There's a lot of info in the "Sticky"s here, too. You should be able to figure out the differences between PS & PSE.
Start with monitor calibration.
Monitor Calibration

Then sharpening, layers, & Adjustment Layers. For instance, you can level out the exposure using a selection & a Layer mask. See post #9; PS Elements in Post # 14
