Why don't you try the links at the bottom of this page?

You do realize that your question has been asked many times on this forum, don't you?

Did you do a search?

I would recommend that you just read a bunch of threads on this forum as a best way to learn about relativity.

SR is largely based on classical mechanics and electromagnetics and it relies on those concepts; it just makes small modifications in mechanics. Thus, make sure that you understand the laws of Newton, classical relativity and basic electromagnetics before starting SR. Probably any textbook on classical physics will do.
