I'd start from templates available in File->New as
As next step google "excel my first pivottable".
Lot of resources, each has pros and cons, and, as usual, there is no one which could be "best". Best for one is not best for another, it very depends on personality, initial skills level and desired result.

I don't know why but people quite seldom use these templates to learn this or that functionality. From my point of view they are very professional and you may find lot tips and tricks working with these templates, not necessary related to main functionality. UI, reporting, navigation, formatting, etc - quite many useful things.

I've just never realized that there was something like the "Take a tour" template there on the top left, something that actually contains instructions. AND that it's there in the basic Excel package itself, not something you have to go hunting for on the internet.
I see it is labeled as "New" so maybe it is just that. I'm generally NOT a template user, having been greatly disappointed by the few I've tried. I have more fun developing my own layouts...but then too I began back in the early days of Lotus 1-2-3 (and before).
