I highly recommend man 7 regex as a compact, concise reference. Do check out other links already mentioned, but keep the section 7 manpage open as a reference to unify concepts as you learn.

I've posted on this topic before, so I'll probably add a little more to this post later.

edit Insead of making a lot of copypasta in this thread I'll just post the link to the last related thread I participated in on the subject of regular expressions.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ssions-912390/

Here are the LQ tags I use for regular expressions.
regex, regular expression
