If you're already fairly familiar with other object-oriented programming languages (such as Java, C++, etc), this web site should give you a good quick overview of Cocoa's syntax: http://www.otierney.net/objective-c.html

Since you're going to be writing an entire application in Cocoa, a good book is an excellent resource. I'd recommend: Aaron Hillegass - Cocoa Programming For Mac OS X. It goes all the way from the basics, to pretty advanced topics. I read it as a Masters student at Uni Adelaide, and was easily able to port a Java application to Cocoa afterwards. (This (http://www.robbiehanson.com/alarmclock/index.html) one actually.)
