If you're still in the game, you might want to look at these notes I just came across: ita.uni-heidelberg.de/~dullemond/lectures/tensor/tensor.pdf –  Andrew Apr 27 at 20:48

For an introduction that is suitable for someone with a mathematical temperament, see A Brief on Tensor Analysis by James G. Simmonds.

For an introduction that is suitable for someone with a physics and engineering temperament, see A Student's Guide to Vectors and Tensors by Daniel Fleisch.

Several sets of notes can be found here by a great teacher - Keith Conrad:

Also by Fields Medal winner Timothy Gowers:
