As for sites, I like www.webreference.com and www.javascript.com (which may be the same site, but the js part only). For more advanced scripting and CSS, DHTML, www.dhtml.com is a great site. They have a lot of tutorials that take you step by step through different procedures. Some great scripts over there. They were the first to come up with the menu drop-down hiearchy, which you are starting to see on a lot of sites.
Haven't really used too many books on Javascript because you can find so much on the web. When it comes to JS, I learned the basics, and then just waited for a problem to present itself, then I go out to the web and start searcing for the answer. I find that for JS, this is better than most books. For the basics, a simple book like Teach Yourself JavaScript in 24 hours is a nice read. Teaches the language syntax and is a book you can finish very quickly.

Bill: I walked through the three site you provided. Indeed, they are very helpful. Originally, I am a frequent visitor to http://www.irt.org/.
Thanks Bill.

Bill,
Thanks for the info. They are very useful. I was able to get a quick online training and able to develop decent programs. Also
XML by Example helped to write XML programs with Javascript. Another goodbook is JavaScript Definitive guide by David Flanagan.
Thanks
Raj

Raj,
Another great site is The JavaScript Source. There's a tutorial, reference to books, and lots of scripts. Good Luck!
