I'm going to assume that you are already comfortable with the basics of photographic technique. So if you don't already understand exposure, if you don't know shutter speed, aperture, ISO, how they're interrelated, if you don't understand what the different shooting modes on your camera are for, if you don't know why you sometimes need to over- or underexpose and how to achieve these over- and underexposures then you should go watch the Foundations of Photography: Exposure course. Now if you just itching to get started on black and white, trust me that the time you spend in that course will make the rest of this course much easier.
I am also going to assume that you know what I mean when I say lens speed, and that you understand the relationship between camera position and focal length. If you don't, then check out Foundations of Photography: Lenses. With those things under your belt, you are ready to be enlightened, and that's what's going to happen next.
