well, I wud suggest u start with tasm. get the Tasm assembler. Try reffering small programs in tasm n executing it. Relate things to c program.

Another +1 to Ganoker's writeup... It's actually great for a newbie like you.

Hi there shade!

Start with Randall Hyde's 16-bit Art of Assembly book - available in HTML and PDF formats. HLA isn't the best choice for beginners. It's mostly a set of macros for 32-bit programming.

TASM is obsolete. Start using MASM or NASM.

Art of Assembly Language Programming and HLA by Randall Hyde

And download RADAsm IDE for practising.

Code:
Assembly Language Step-by-Step: Programming with DOS and Linux, Second Edition
by Jeff Duntemann ISBN:0471375233
is also a good book, lemme know if you want it. I can upload it to somewhere.
If you want to learn assembly for reasons other than academic, then you should definitely read
Code:
Debugging Applications / John Robbins.
ISBN 0-7356-0886-5

Especially the chapter 6
and other msdn articles by John Robbins.

Iczelion's Win32 Assembly Homepage is also a great resource and tutorial.
