Non-designer needs design help!

What are some tried and true resources for someone who needs to become more familiar and efficient with Photoshop and InDesign?

I have never considered myself to be a "computer person", but I'm finding that my job is requiring me to be much more well versed in Adobe Photoshop and InDesign CS3 than I currently am. I'm looking into taking a class or two--but until I can get the logistics of that figured out, what are some great, basic, yet thorough books that you've had success with that I could use to help me along? Trust me--I would not consider any recommendations to be "too basic"!

Adobe makes a series of books called Classroom in a Book. These are really good.

There's the Adobe Video Workshop and the Help & Support Section of the Adobe Design Center. There's a whole section of videos for CS4 linked off that page.

Another site that's been around for a while and has great tutorial content it Lynda.com. Tons of Photoshop tutorials here.
