Where to start with textures, materials etc?

The title pretty much says it all. I’d like to know more about creating textures and materials. I’ve heard all of the terminology such as specular maps… bump maps… displacement and things… I’d just like to know where people start learning about this stuff? I think I’d enjoy doing textures and wondering if there’s a particular resource everyone seems to use when they’re starting out in this field?

Cheers!
