And some good JQuery tutorials would be helpful. The tutorials on jquery.com are not very good, some are poorly written and they like most of the tutorials I have found so far tend to focus on a very specific task instead of general use.
Suggestions will be appreciated. I want to learn this quickly. Anything with examples is a plus.
The fastest way to learn is not from tutorials, because they as you have experienced tend to focus on specific tasks.
Instead, the fastest way to learn is to write code that you then have critiqued by several different people.
