You can start to learn QuickBooks using a Sample File. QuickBooks ships with play (sample) company files which allows you to enter test transactions and see the results.
The sample company file is already setup with customers, invoices and other transactions. You can also add your own transactions and experiment with QuickBooks. This is a great way to learn what many of the new features can do for you.
