For a nice treatment, that is surprisingly deep, on tensors (ranks 0,1,2,3 for both covariant and contravariant) check out Gabriel Weinreich's book Geometrical Vectors.
I got a chance to skim through the book at a bookstore, and didn't really see the word "tensor" mentioned. I bought it anyway because it looked like an enlightening read. What other sources would you recommend for an absolute beginners treatment?
