The best book I've encountered is ``Pragmatic Version Control Using  
Subversion,'' 2nd Edition, by Mike Mason. It can get you started at  
the CLI level (you've got to do that at first if you set up a  
repository) and then set up svnX.

You've got to learn some terminology or you can get very confused and  
this book has nice descriptions of what you need to know.

Good Luck,
