Finding programming study resources is tough. I mean, there's no shortage of material out there on the internet, but from a total beginner's perspective I've always found it hard to know where to start. So many tutorials assume some prior knowledge which I just didn't have. Here are a few links that I've found which stand out as very accessible to the absolute beginner. I'll add to these over time, but for now this is it. If you have any to add, please leave them in the comments.
