Another interesting guide is
Spork - Skud's Perl Training Fork
o Introduction to Perl
o CGI Programming in Perl
o Database Programming with Perl
o Intermediate Perl
Good teaching material.
Rex Swain's HTMLified Perl 5 Reference Guide is also good to know about.
Generally, the learn.perl.org site is an excellent starting point.

If you're learning Perl, there is no better book than Orwant's Perl 5 Interactive Course published by eZone.
It's out of print, but it actually tackles learning Perl tasks in a sane order, instead of jumping all over the place the way Learning Perl does. Each chapter actually builds on the previous one, unlike Learning Perl, which assumes that you know a bunch of things you might not know in every single chapter.
You can sometimes find used copies on Amazon.
