I'll list some of the books and articles I've read that really helped me out when I started to learn MVC3. These books are pay for but they do offer a digital sale if you live overseas.

Highly recommend them as they will give you the boost you need when starting out.

The default docs are good, but nothing beats learning by following a linear path into building a complete website. If you read these two books from cover to cover I personally guarantee you will have more fun with the framework and bending it to your will.

No more fighting over why this route didn't work or why the form value isn't being passed into my controllers POST action method.

Although this thread may be few years old, thank you for taking time and finding us the relevant resource to get started with MVC.

I am still looking for further resources and viewed few links regarding MVC but this is good as well.

Thanks again.
