1) if the svn-book is too much check out this: http://betterexplained.com/articles/a-visual-guide-to-version-control/

2) Even better: look at this site, which provides a very nice easy  
step-by-step explanation how to set up a repository on one's own  
computer, which (for the first time!) made it possible for me to  
create and manage a svn-repository.
"Subversion for writers" at http://strangenoises.org/subversion-for-writers/

he too recommends the svn-plugin, which works allright (creation of  
the repository still needs the command-line) but it tends to attach  
its icons to all new folders etc. OUTSIDE my working copy…

3) Another excellent GUI-tool to work with svn-repositories is  
Zigversion at http://zigversion.com/
which is free for academic and non-commercial use. Doesn't look as  
polished as Versions but works well. There is a good short video to  
explain how to use it.
Again for creation of repositories one would need the Terminal first.

So look at 2) and try it out and then check out the tool of your choice.
