Alrighty guys, I start school on the 27th and my first real game programming class will be coming up. The class is focusing on Python, so I figured I'd go ahead and get a leg up if I could. Do any of you know and really good, but preferably easy to understand, tutorials on Python? Just a little something to get my a head start so I can blow this course out of the water. I'm already so excited, I get goosebumps thinking about it :P . Thanks in advance for the help.

Hey, this is what I have been reading:
Check the offcial python for more tutorials, I think it has some official programming guides:

Plenty of docs there, I hope you find the best doc to start with.

Psa 32:5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.

The one that I use when I teach people Python is a book called How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Learning with Python -- it's a very nice book with full (and free) .pdf and .html downloads. It's a quality book, and I have a printed and bound copy sitting on a desk of mine somewhere (though it actually might be loaned out to a youth at church who wants to learn Python).

I'd recommed both the book that Clint posted a link to and the one that Jari posted.
