Is schaum's, tensor calculus outline a good introduction to the basics of the subject? I'm looking for something that isn't too formal and purely elementary.

You should look for something that explains to you what's actually going on, not simply a book which shows you what errors not to commit when manipulating some indeces. I.e.: No, it is not, imho.
