There's the manual, but it's kind of overwhelming.

If you Google for MySQL tutorials, you will find more links than you can shake a mouse at.

O'Reilly has a lot of resources, but many of them will cost a little money.

The Linux Documentation Project also has a lot of stuff at no charge.

You can even find stuff on YouTube.

When it comes to MySQL administration, for a beginner none is needed apart from setting a root password and creating a more restricted user.
Still, there are many tweaks for performance optimization on the configuration side.

Youtube also has many tutorials on MySQL.

After you've learn the basics, you can pickup additional tips and more intermediate examples
