NiaN covers a lot of how Na'vi works in a very understandable style.
This covers a bunch of the linguistics concepts that you may find useful.
Taronyu's dictionary is well... a dictionary. It's updated often.
This is the online wiki dictionary.

Feel free to ask if you have questions :)

What might helps beside reading all those guides is to have a look on many posts in the Beginners-subforum, that's the way how I unterstood some of the things I didn't understand first ;)
And yeah, keep on learning this language in the first weeks - I didn't do so and I had to read most parts of the guide again (okay, maybe because I was learning some other things, but it ain't bad to not stop learning).

I'd suggest taking a look at basic grammar (NiaN is good for this) and then learning some words. That way you can start using the language and start learning from your mistakes. Check out this list.

Make up a few favorite sentences, or borrow some favorite dialogue from the film. Memorize it and speak it often. This will help you in many ways, and give you some useful things to say. A good place to start might be the 3 part addition on conversational words in Paul Frommer's blog http://naviteri.org/

Yup. I agree. I just learned a bunch of random, but useful words. I figured that I couldn't learn grammar without knowing the material. Good luck!

Also, if you want, find someone to tutor you. I'm willing as I'm sure plenty of others are. Also, I didn't see the IRC mentioned, that's a great place for quick questions or to chat easily with a bunch of Na'vi speakers.

Na'vi in a nutshell is a good guide. It is (in my opinion at least) sordet according to what is advicable to learn first. I sugegest you start there.

Don't do the same mistake as I did, which is not minding vocabulary so much.
